This conference highlights the opportunities, and how solutions can be found in overcoming challenges in city management. With a growing trend towards motorised transport (a major factor behind the rise in global greenhouse gas emissions), prominent speakers will showcase how lowcarbon transport options from around the world, which, if replicated on a large scale, could make cities within the BIMP-EAGA, greener and more liveable. Speakers will also present on why there is a need to benchmark, how efficient cities are managed and how access to funding mechanisms can assist in developing cities of the future.
Both participants and presenters will have the opportunity to discuss specific in-country issues and with the diverse expertise present, on opportunities to promote greener and more liveable cities. And together, how evidence of best practices of cities that have "transformed their course” can be emulated, to create more sustainable cities in the BIMP-EAGA.
