The world is urbanizing at a rapid pace. By 2050, two-thirds of the global population will be living in cities. Cities are therefore the best place to start addressing three mega-trends that drive global environmental issues: urbanization, a rising middle class and population growth. As engines of economic growth, cities already produce 80 percent of the world’s GDP. They consume over two thirds of global energy supply, and generate 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. Cities are also uniquely vulnerable to climate change: 14 of the world’s 19 largest cities are located in port areas. Topics include:
  • Smart Cities as an Enabler to Support Sustainable City Development - GSIAC
  • Competitive Cities in Urban Sustainable Development - UN Habitat
  • Sustainable Cities and Indicators - UNIDO
  • Report on System of Competitive Cities - World Bank
  • Predictive City Planning through Satellite Imaging - ESA
  • City Carbon Inventory - ICLEI
