Shaping Smart Sustainable Cities for the New Urban Agenda

16 March 2016

Side event to the European Habitat Conference

Time: 16:00 to 17:30
Venue: Club H, Prague Congress Center, Prague
Language: English


United Nations organizations have been working in a concerted manner to address economic growth, sustainability and social inclusion in urban areas so as to set a feasible benchmark for cities aiming to transition into smart sustainable cities. The UNECE Committee on Housing and Land Management, at its 75th session, mandated its secretariat to establish the “United Smart Cities” project and at its 76th session, on 14 December 2015, the Committee endorsed the globally accepted definition for Smart Sustainable Cities and the set of Smart Sustainable Cities Indicators that UNECE and ITU jointly developed. Smart Sustainable City indicators will be incorporated along with the other SDG indicators and will be updated when all the SDG indicators are adopted by the UN in March 2016.
This session will analyse how the internationally developed indicators formulated by UNECE and ITU will help countries surge forward in the smart sustainable city realm, thereby providing all countries with a benchmark for smart sustainable operations.
