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.
