Following the success of the initial NUFs, the NUF3 was held from 6 to 7 February 2019 in Kigali, under the leadership of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Rwanda (MININFRA), that is mandated to coordinate and oversee urban policies nationally. The forum was an opportunity to discuss current urban development issues related to
sustainable development, affordable housing and unplanned settlement upgrading, urban participatory development approaches, a spatial development framework for Rwanda and local economic development. Participants discussed climate change issues and green cities.
