Cities and local governments are a source of ideas and approaches to help the world reach the Goals of 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda). Cities also demonstrate how the tenets of the New Urban Agenda (NUA) can be implemented with creativity, efficient use of resources, and broad community support.
This side event showcases how local governments are demonstrating just how impactful urban innovation can be and how important it is to engage cities as partners in efforts to implement the NUA and to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs.
Up to three living case studies of urban innovation from Africa, Asia and Latin America and/or Europe will present their efforts in addressing the the three transformative commitments of the New Urban Agenda, namely : Social inclusion and ending poverty; Inclusive urban prosperity and opportunities; and Environmental sustainability and resilience.
The side event will also involve a panel of experts to discuss lessons learned.
