This event builds on experiences gained during the ongoing Cities’ Partnership Initiative (CPI), a flagship project of the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy of Poland (MDFRP), implemented in collaboration with 30 Polish cities and the World Bank. The CPI gathers a diversified group of cities (small, mid-size and large; advanced and beginners; growing and declining), which makes lessons learned extracted from this Initiative applicable to a broad spectrum of other urban centers across Europe and beyond. Three key themes will be to i) promote an approach to the sustainable urban development that bases on mutual learning among a group of cities led by technical experts, ii) share selected results of such collaboration in one of the three CPI's thematic areas, i.e. green urban investments, and iii) exemplify how experience derived from the city-level work can shape national-level instruments for urban development and help implementing SDG's. The discussants will share their experiences in developing city-level interventions aiming at sustainable development, describing key success factors, bottlenecks and mitigation measures they encountered and developed. Also a transmission path onto national level instruments will be discussed.
The audience will learn about selected specific sustainable urban development solutions designed and/or implemented by cities participating in the event (process of their preparation and key lessons learned). Moreover, audience will better understand how collaboration between the national and municipal level shape country’s urban policy and help localising SDG's.
