A green and socially responsible economy: a solution in times of crisis?

The biggest European conference on sustainable development since the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.

With more than half of the global population living in urban areas, it has been extensively demonstrated that cities and urbanization play a key role in achieving sustainability targets. Cites provide an ideal opportunity to directly gauge the urgent needs of communities and are therefore essential when delivering sustainability.

One of the panel discussions will be centered around adaptation and disaster risk reduction with the participation of a representative of the The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).
