Overview

NewsWorld Bank and Global Environment Facility (GEF) launch new multi-million dollar ‘Global Platform for Sustainable Cities’

The Global Platform for Sustainable Cities (GPSC) is a knowledge sharing and management program designed as part of the Sustainable Cities Integrated Approach Pilot (SC-IAP), a $150 million program funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The SC-IAP program consists of the GPSC and a variety of urban sustainability projects in 23 participating cities across 11 countries supported by ADB, AfDB, DBSA, IDB, UNDP, UNEP, UNIDO and World Bank. The GPSC, led by the World Bank, aims to:

Tie all the city level projects together under one platform and promote an integrated approach to urban planning, financing and implementation; and provide a space for collaborative engagement by cities with aspirations for sustainability and a wide range of city networks and partner organizations to support them.

With the support of the GEF and in partnership with the Government of Singapore, the GPSC will hold a series of meetings, learning events and site visit from March 9 to 11, 2016 in Singapore. It is expected that almost 200 participants from about 30 cities and organizations will attend the meetings.

This event is part of Singapore Urban Week 2016 (March 7-11).
