The Committee on Regional Development (REGI) organised a Joint REGI-COTER Public Hearing on the Implementation of the EU Urban Agenda: “Towards the Pact of Amsterdam” during its extraordinary Committee meeting of 25 January 2016.

On 13 October, the REGI committee held a joint meeting with the COTER commission of the Committee of the Regions. One of the topics discussed was the EU's urban agenda and the progress that might be expected during the Dutch presidency of the Council in the first half of 2016. The two chairs signed a joint statement. As a follow-up to the joint statement, the two committees have decided to hold a joint hearing on the urban agenda and discuss it from the perspectives of academics and practitioners in the field.
