Reaching all Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 will require transformational changes towards people-driven smart sustainable cities and communities, with smart collaborative governance and visualised, interactive decision support and large-scale collaborative experimentation.
City-city partnerships can help urban stakeholders learn from the successes and failures of their peers both locally and internationally; copy, adapt and scale-up successful approaches in their own cities and communities; and transfer successful approaches to international partner markets.
In this session, international urban experts will present and discuss their work with people-driven smart sustainable cities and city-city partnerships.
