Cities cover approximately 12% of the planetís surface and consume 85% of the natural resources. Cities require a concentration of food, water, energy and materials that nature cannot provide limitlessly. As cities become the predominant human habitat, urban development needs to undergo a profound paradigm shift. The objectives of this event are to highlight innovative approaches and partnerships between cities and private sector. The event will present orientations that UNITAR together with some of its partners and its network of affiliated training centers will endeavour to implement. The event aims to provide contribution to the UN Global Compact Cities Programme, and to initiate a process of knowledge sharing and development among cities through the UNITAR affiliated international training centers for local actors (CIFAL network).
