Transforming Cities for People and Planet through Integrated Urban Development: Launch of UrbanShift

As our planet urbanizes more rapidly than ever before, cities face extraordinary challenges, from flash floods and heat waves triggered by the climate crisis to urban sprawl and deepening social inequities.

How can integrated planning approaches tackle complex urban challenges to ensure a resilient, livable future for all?

Join us on September 21 during Climate Week NYC to discuss this pressing question. You’ll learn from experts about holistic strategies to combat urban environmental crises, such as pollution and biodiversity loss. You’ll also hear from local leaders in India, Sierra Leone, and Argentina on how cross-sectoral collaboration is spurring low-carbon growth within their cities.
