Summary

Rapid economic development and urbanization requires massive new investments that could be a great opportunity for governments and stakeholders to mitigate the impacts of future risks by building resilient infrastructure for sustainable urban development. This event will explore the essential elements of building resilient infrastructure to provide practical guidance for policymakers and practitioners who are aiming to promote the New Urban Agenda, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the 2030 Agenda, the Paris Agreement, and other international agreements facilitating sustainable urban development

Objectives

While recent international conferences, including the SPP Meeting, have created a common understanding of the importance of resilient cities and their underlying infrastructure, the challenge is how to translate this into practice. This event will focus on the opportunities and challenges of promoting resilient infrastructure for sustainable urban development and to explore pathways for sustainable urban development. These points are also expected to contribute to sharing knowledge on better reconstruction (Build Back Better) regardless of whether it is due to conflict or disaster.
