The Forum Cities and Regions for Development Cooperation aims to foster policy dialogue on sustainable urban development among local and regional authorities and their associations from the European Union and its partner countries. In particular, the 2019 forum aims at outlining strategic policy recommendations as well as identifying and showcasing good practices that can be scaled-up in the region leading to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. We organised a side-event there.
Side-event: Blue-green infrastructure for urban resilience
Date & Time: 5 February 2019, 14.00 – 16.30
Location: Aloft Brussels Schuman, Room Tactic 2, Place Jean Rey, 1040 Brussels
Summary of the event: Rapid urbanization, as well as climate change, poses great challenges to cities and regions. Urban Resilience is, therefore, a key consideration when planning our cities for tomorrow. Our event seeks to showcase through examples from Panama, Indonesia, and the Philippines, how successful partnerships are key to the promotion of green-blue infrastructure and finally can lead to sustainable and climate resilient urban development in the future.
