Rural-Urban Connectivity in Integrated Regional Development: Implications towards Livelihood Security and Poverty Alleviation

14 July 2017 @ 6:15 pm

The side event will contribute to the theme of this year’s HLPF by focusing on policies and tools that are found effective in promoting eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity, such as Integrated Regional Development Planning (IRDP), the International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning, national urban policies, strengthening policies and capacity to address regional disparities, territorial approach to food security and nutrition, rural-urban linkages and partnerships, city region approaches to food systems, and promoting rural transport, etc. 

The side event will also present good examples of such efforts, such as the Vientiane Declaration on Rural Transport for Sustainable Regional Development adopted at the 10th Regional EST Forum in Asia (March 2017, Lao PDR). 

These good cases of policies and tools will be presented by the distinguished panelists. After the presentations by the panelists, open dialogues will be planned with the participants. 

Please see provisional programme here.

UNCRD along with all the co-organizers and supporting partners invites all the delegates and participating stakeholders of the 2017 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.
