Session 1: Promoting Urban Safety in Smart Sustainable Cities

8 July 2016

Room XXV, Palais des Nations, Geneva

The workshop aims to discuss how the use of ICT can support to build safer and more sustainable cities in the path towards the Agenda 2030. This session will also identify key challenges and opportunities for cities to become safer and smarter and present examples of good practices from the relevant stakeholders. 

The workshop is organized by UN-Habitat and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.

The workshop is organised as a session of the conference “Conference on “Reviewing the State of Safety in World Cities” which will offer a global platform to assess the state of safety of cities around the world and to exchange promising practices on achieving safer cities through different event formats (market-places, break-out out sessions, etc.).
