Exploring critical topics in sustainable urban development

On 13-15 April 2021,  ICLEI hosted ICLEI World Congress 2021 – 2022. It included high-level discussions on how local and regional governments can continue to advance on sustainable development.

Local and Subnational Governments.

ICLEI World Congress showcased how cities, towns and regions across our network are advancing sustainable urban development worldwide. It connected local and regional governments with their peers and strategic partners, and provided a platform for discussions that informed and enhanced their work.

This all-digital experience kicked off the World Congress with high level, insightful, global discussions. The Virtual Launch is followed by The Road to Malmö throughout 2021, building to The Malmö Summit, 11-13 May 2022, in Malmö, Sweden.

On April 14th (16pm-17pm CEST), a session on “Engaging Cities and Regions in the Global Nature Agenda” addressed the importance of this recognition, focusing on its significance across urban rural linkages and landscape-based action for nature-based development, as well as at the city scale. It also highlighted its significance in terms of interlinkages with other agendas such as climate, health, human rights and sustainable development.
