Resilient Cities: Implementing the New Urban Agenda

Speaker

More
Today, our cities and citizens are facing new and amplified challenges as a result of rapid urbanization, a changing climate and social instability. From earthquakes to flooding, rapid immigration to cyber-attacks, all cities confront a range of shocks and stresses, natural and human-made.

In order to combat this, the global community is increasingly realizing that we need to build resilience into our cities by empowering and strengthening the capabilities of local government and their partners, including local populations.

Urban resilience has gained a predominant role in global development agendas. The Agenda 2030 and the New Urban Agenda identify urban resilience as a key topic to accelerate the implementation of new sustainable urban development models.

This session aims to focus and debate on recommendations for more sustainable and resilient cities, in alignment with the New Urban Agenda and the achievement of the SDGs.

Fossil fuels as the primary source of energy predates recorded history. Fossil-based fuels (oil, coal, and natural gas) currently provide about 85% of all the energy worldwide. However, the trends have been changing as the World is moving towards more sustainable energy options. To successfully move towards a sustainable renewable source of energy the technology behind it needs to be more practical and economical as that will incentivize governments and corporations to switch to a more renewable approach.

This session will discuss on how to make renewable energy a more viable option. The session will also touch upon innovations that are revolutionising the renewable energy landscape and also hear from government officials on how they are encouraging green energy in their cities.

Nations around the World currently generate 1.3 billion tons of waste. That’s expected to soar to 4 billion tons by 2100. Given the rise in waste, there are major concerns with regards to waste management as landfills, combustion and other traditional methods are criticised and becoming less popular.

In this session, we will discover how waste can be converted into opportunity. How recycling can be an incentive for municipal and private firms to generate clean energy. We shall also discover technologies emerging around the World which have a sustainable impact on waste management.
