Second Annual Meeting of the Global Platform for Sustainable Cities

October 30, 2017 to November 2, 2017

Currently comprised of 27 cities across 11 pilot countries, the Global Platform for Sustainable Cities, or GPSC, supports cities in their efforts to adopt an integrated approach to urban planning and financing.  

Led by the World Bank and supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), in collaboration with development partners, the GPSC promotes sustainable development amidst rapid urbanization and works with practitioners and thought leaders from around the world in developing solutions for sustainable urban growth.

At the annual forum, mayors and city leaders convene with experts from financial institutions, international organizations, UN agencies and the private sector, to share best practices in sustainable development planning and discuss policy options towards a common vision of urban sustainability. 

The theme of the 2017 forum – ‘Innovation & Smart Solutions for Urban Sustainability’ – will be illustrated through the many scheduled events, including a Mayor’s RoundTable, high-level panel discussions and a series of in-depth learning events.
