APA Webinar: Integrating Urban and Regional Sustainability Planning
October 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Habitat III, in 2016 in Quito, Ecuador, introduced the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and was important to planners in the US and internationally for presenting the New Urban Agenda (NUA) through SDG 11. SDG 11 in turn was influenced by APA and other planning organizations who provided their input to the NUA through their white paper, The City We Need. The session will describe and compare how different US and international planning organizations and initiatives address the integration of sustainable territorial planning with sustainable urban planning, exploring if one level does or should set the agenda for the other and for what planning elements. This webcast is hosted by APA’s International Division.
