11 November 2015: Promoting Transformational Change through Sustainable, Inclusive and Resilient Cities
Watch the event live from Cuenca, Ecuador:
Wednesday 9 November 09h00-10h45 ECT
Objectives of the side event are two-fold:
- First, to highlight the importance of sustainable, inclusive and resilient cities for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to share knowledge on implementation mechanisms to achieve SDG 11 at the local level. UNDP and its partners are committed to sharing their expertise and knowledge on the issue of inclusive development and seek to share exchanges with various stakeholders in creating more sustainable, inclusive and resilient urban environments around the world.
- Second, the event will emphasize the value and importance of cities in localizing the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. Knowing what tools and resources are available for cities to reach the targets outlined in the new SDGs will be critical for the adoption and implementation of the New Urban Agenda.

- A staff from our NGO partner talking with two of the 500 female dairy farmers we're working with. Grocery shelves are empty in Yemen because no one is able to grow food or make cheese. Even if farmers have food to deliver--the roads are blocked by bombed buildings and there's no fuel for trucks. Getting small farmers like these ladies to make food again are the first order of business to prevent malnutrition and hunger in Yemen: UNDP Yemen 5 hours ago
