UNECE Green Economy Seminar "Compact, smart and climate-neutral? - Cities in a Green Economy", Geneva

26 September 2012

Room VII
Languages: English, Russian and French with simultaneous translation

Whether compact, smart, resource-efficient or climate-neutral – sustainable urban development has many faces. During this third UNECE Green Economy Seminar, different concepts, approaches and initiatives, which aim to achieve sustainable urban development and support the transition to a Green Economy in urban areas, will be presented and discussed. At the seminar, we would like to explore how these concepts differ from each other and what they have in common. Can we agree on a common denominator for sustainable urban development?

This seminar will be organized back to back with the annual session of the UNECE Committee on Housing and Land Management bringing together representatives of UNECE member States.

The seminar is relevant to other programmes as sustainable urban development is the outcome of good practice in the areas of environmental planning, housing, energy, transport etc.
