WECUD brings together a diverse range of stakeholders, including policymakers, urban planners, entrepreneurs, researchers, and community leaders. Through our global network of members and partners, we facilitate dialogue, exchange best practices, and develop actionable solutions to drive sustainable urban development.

Our aim at WECUD is to tackle the complicated issues that urban areas are currently facing, including rapid urbanization, climate change, social inequality, and technological advancements. In our opinion, cities are the driving forces behind economic development and have the potential to become vibrant, inclusive, and resilient hubs that improve the standard of living for all citizens.


Witnessing the challenges posed by population growth, infrastructure demands, social disparities, and environmental degradation in cities around the world, the organization was established with a clear vision of creating sustainable and inclusive urban communities.

Through extensive research, policy advocacy, capacity building, and collaborative initiatives, we aim to be a catalyst for positive change in urban development. Our team of experts works closely with governments, communities, businesses, and other NGOs to develop evidence-based strategies that prioritize people’s needs and preserve the planet’s resources.

Over the years, we have successfully implemented numerous projects that have improved access to basic services, enhanced urban mobility, provided affordable housing solutions, and fostered entrepreneurship and innovation in urban areas. We are committed to empowering individuals and communities, enabling them to participate actively in shaping the future of their cities.
