This roundtable is being co-organized by the School of International Development and Global studies at the University of Ottawa and ICCASU (http://chinaeam.uottawa.ca/ICCASU/) to promote an exchange between Government, Universities, Civil Society, Researchers and Practitioners on Canada's involvement in the up-coming Habitat III Summit.
