Event Sustainable and green cities in the South

Some mega-cities in the South have more inhabitants than  Belgium, but also have large slum areas. Smaller cities are confronted with unprecedented growth and city councils are grappling with providing a suitable infrastructure.  On the other hand cities are also often cited as the policy level where a green development is taking place. How can city planners and development aid avoid pitfalls from the past and create more sustainable and greener cities? The session will give an introduction to the current thinking and is illustrated with practical examples from over the globe.
