WEBINAR: Integrating Urban and Regional Sustainability Planning

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM MST - Note the differnt time.
HOSTED BY: International Division
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. While planners have celebrated the well-deserved attention that cities and planning have gotten in the SDGs and NUA, it is noteworthy that more work was needed on how to integrate sustainable development planning at the urban and territorial levels. In particular, more attention needs to be paid to whether the role of territorial planning is mainly to support urban needs by providing environmental and other services or whether regional planning is the ideal scale for sustainability planning whereby river basins, airsheds, and biodiversity areas set the limits and guide the course of urban planning. 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.
