19-21 June 2013 Berlin, Germany
Berlin High-level Dialogue on Implementing Rio+20 Decisions on Sustainable Cities and Urban Transport

This dialogue, which coincides with the first anniversary of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD, or Rio+20), aims to: (a) highlight proven sustainable urban planning and transport policies and measures, (b) identify good and best practices in this regard, and (c) facilitate capacity building through national and international exchanges of information and experiences among relevant practitioners, experts and policy makers, in particular from developing countries. It is also intended to contribute to the UN Secretary-General's plan to “convene aviation, marine, ferry, rail, road and urban public transport providers, along with Governments and investors, to develop and take action on recommendations for more sustainable transport systems that can address rising congestion and pollution worldwide, particularly in urban areas.”
