TG09 co-chair Cynthia Rosenszweig presented at the Experts Workshop on Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements that was organized by Communitas Coalition to enable governments to discuss informally with experts, major groups, stakeholders, and UN agencies the issue of sustainable urbanization in the future sustainable development goal (SDG) framework and UN development agenda. The event took place on December 5 and 6 at the United Nations headquarters. Participants discussed potential urban goals, targets, and indicators, with Dr. Rosenszweig arguing that only a stand-alone, dedicated urban SDG can mobilize and empower all urban actors to address the specific challenges of urban sustainable development. The meeting outcomes were included in 6 concept papers to be submitted to the Open Working Group for its session on Sustainable Cities in January 2014.
