World Urban Forum: Make cities inclusive

There are ten years remaining to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. To accelerate the progress there was a World Urban Forum in Abu Dhabi about ‘Leave No One Behind’. Our colleague Murali Padmanabhan was invited to speak about the 11th SDG: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, resilient and sustainable’.

Murali shared information about the relevance and urgency of making cities accessible: Fifteen percent of the world population has a disability. More than a half of them lives in cities and towns that are not accessible. It is predicted that by 2050 nearly 6 billion people inhabit urban centres. This means that nearly 1 billion people in the cities and towns are in a challenge for accessible infrastructure.to read more about the information Murali shared or about the Forum?
