Working to build Sustainable Cities and Communities

Today, over four billion people around the world – more than 50% of the global population – live in cities. In East Asia and the Pacific alone, for example, cities house 1.2 billion people – almost rivaling the population of India (Source: World bank). By 2050, with the urban population doubling its current size, nearly 70 out 100 people in the world will live in cities. The speed and scale of urbanization brings tremendous challenges. Climate change further complicates the urbanization challenge.

The session discussions will focus on changing landscape of cities and communities and work ahead. Affordable housing, good quality basic services and better jobs would be highlighted.

Discussion Points:

  • New Urban agenda
  • Building resilience to natural disasters and climate change
  • Rapid urbanization: Unprecedented challenges
