The International Urban Training Centre (IUTC) was established in January 2007 by the Province of Gangwon, Republic of Korea, to build the capacity of cities and towns nationally and in the Asian and Pacific region in support of the goal of sustainable urbanization. IUTC aims to bridge the knowledge gap between academia, local and central government in the field of sustainable urban development by facilitating communication, professional networking, learning and exchange of information. It will seek to enable dialogue between different stakeholders to create mutual trust and understanding in the realization of sustainable communities at the local, national and international levels.
