On this #WorldHabitatDay, we gather to shed light on this year's theme from the United Nations: "Resilient Urban Economies: Cities as Drivers of Growth and Recovery." In the face of global economic challenges, exacerbated by the impacts of COVID-19 and conflicts, cities play a pivotal role in the path to recovery.
This year's focus includes addressing economic slowdown in cities, sharing strategies to combat inflationary pressures, and fostering sustainable growth. Cities, as economic powerhouses, hold the key to not only weathering these challenges but also driving forward resilient recoveries. It's imperative that these efforts are aligned with a green recovery framework, emphasizing the transition to a climate-neutral economy in a post-COVID world.
