The Forum will provide a platform for the generation of ideas, development of future directions and understanding of problems facing urban Pakistan, and will help create a consensus in the process of city-making.

Our hope is that this process will result in the production of publications that provide a deeper understanding about explicit relationships and tangible and intangible networks that facilitate the flow of energy, information, goods and people. It will also create future opportunities for cooperation and research between the government, academia, international organisations and various communities needed in finding solutions to the problems of our ever-growing cities.
