NEWS: London Conference on Rapid Urbanization

The 22nd of February FABRICations director Eric Frijters took part in the London Conference on Rapid Urbanization, hosted by PFBC and UN-Habitat.

The Conference brought together a number of key partners, including the Prince Charles, the Commonwealth Local Government Forum, Commonwealth Association of Planners and the Commonwealth Association of Architects to develop a methodology and tools that would be used to help operationalise UN-Habitat’s International Guidelines for Urban & Territorial Planning (IG-UTP), in the context of the NUA and the SDGs. The Guidelines provide national governments, local authorities, civil society organisations and planning professionals with a global reference framework that promotes more compact, socially inclusive, better integrated and connected cities and territories that foster sustainable urban development and are resilient to climate change.
