2018 Annual Session of Global Forum on Human Settlements Calls for Urban Innovation


BANGKOK, Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/--

The Global Forum on Human Settlements 2018 successfully convened as an

observance of the World Cities Day 2018 between 30-31 October at UN Conference

Center, Bangkok. Themed as Advancing Urban Innovations to Achieve SDG 11 and

New Urban Agenda (NUA), the two-day event drew over 400 participants from more

than 40 countries including Mr. Hongjoo Hahm, Officer-in-Charge of the UNESCAP;

Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Chairman of GFHS, Former UN

Under-Secretary-General and High Representative; minister-level officials from

Vanuatu, Thailand and other governments; mayors; experts; and business leaders.

Representatives from various sectors announced commitments to support

sustainable and resilient cities. The Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements

Awards (SCAHSA) were presented to 36 winners, including Hua Hin, Thailand;

Indore, India; Kalundborg Symbiosis, Denmark; Qingdao Sino-German Ecopark,

China; and Arcadis Shelter Program, among others. The awardees have

significantly contributed to sustainable cities and human settlements.  

The Forum was organized by the Global Forum on Human Settlements with support

from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the

Pacific, in cooperation with Global One Belt One Road Association, Universal

Peace Federation and concerned organizations.

SDG 11 is the lynchpin of the localizing process of all 17 goals. The Forum

emphasized the great potential of cities to foster innovation and realize green

growth, and the profound significance of well-designed policies and strategies

to maximize the benefits of local actions. It called for comprehensive,

cooperative, pragmatic and equal partnership by breaking the political,

economic, social, gender and geographic hierarchy.

An IGMC 3-D animation film, based on the life of the SaSa family of three and

inspired by IGMC Standards 3.0, provided a visual representation of what a

greener city looks like. A training session was conducted to facilitate the

integration of IGMC Standards 3.0 into urban planning and development. The

Standards is an assessment and planning tool for sustainable urban development,

providing technical means and evaluation methods for implementing SDGs and NUA

at local level.

The Forum came to a productive close by setting the way forward and calling to

enhance the localization of SDGs and achieve the transition to green growth

through developing circular economy, scaling up financing for sustainable urban

infrastructure, sustainably managing urban water, applying innovative

technologies for smart cities, building enhanced partnership and creating

international green model cities.
