Tia Summit in the Press

Summit Pillars

City Governments & Regions

Local governments set the overall direction for their cities through long-term planning. Setting the vision, and then ensuring that it is achieved, is one of the most important roles of local government. Hear from the city representatives the success stories and lessons they learned.

Multi-National Firms & Start-ups

The New Urban Agenda calls on businesses "to apply their creativity and innovation to solving sustainable development challenges". Start-ups in particular have a major role in bringing cost effective retrofit solutions to the cities. This session will feature companies pitch their innovative solutions to the decision makers.

Banks & Investors

While financing options are not evolving quite as fast as technology, they are evolving nonetheless. It is imperative that urban stakeholders understand the nuances, advantages, and shortfalls of each mechanism before choosing a tool to finance projects under their purview. Urban stakeholders will have a chance to learn from a panel of leading project financing experts.

NGOs & Research Institutions

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have played a major role in pushing for sustainable development in cities. These actors are demonstrating their value as facilitators, service providers, advocates as well as innovators. Engaging business with non-profit sectors to find common solutions to problems has been an increasing trend globally.
