Smart Sustainable City planning and design are vital to implementation of the New Urban Agenda's vision of a sustainable future. Smart urbanism merges information and communication technologies; energy, resource and infrastructure technologies into networks that create sustainable, resilient, regenerative, urban-rural ecosystems with vibrant communities, thriving economies and biodiverse environments. This two-hour networking event will focus on concrete examples of implementing the New Urban Agenda with smart sustainable cities. Ten (10) representatives of international planning organizations will outline their programs for creating smart sustainable cities that implement Sustainable Development Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. The objective will be to share programs and develop a comprehensive, multi-national approach to smart sustainable urbanism. The outcome will be a published report on global, state-of-the-art, smart sustainable programs.
