STORYLINE:

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today (16 Oct) said cities are “central to climate action, global prosperity, peace and human rights,” and highlighted the goal of making them “inclusive, safe, resilient, healthy and sustainable.”

Speaking at a joint press conference with President Rafael Correa of Ecuador during the opening day of the Habitat III conference in Quito, Ban said “If we get out towns and cities right, we’ll be closer to achieving all the Sustainable Development Goals by which we can make our cities and our world, our life, healthier, more prosperous, and resilient.”

Correa, for his part noted that “never has the Urban Agenda taken a deeper look at the problems faced by the global south.”

He pointed out that the Agenda covers “land speculation, illegitimate profiteering, which favors just a few, land’s public function, social and environmental aspects, the full inclusion of people with disabilities, immigrants, quality public spaces, common but differentiated responsibilities to face climate change and to build sustainable cities.”

President Correa said the Quito declaration “includes the concept of resilient cities,” which has the capacity “to face the new challenges of our time and to recover from major contingencies such as the one we had to face in Ecuador with the April 2016 earthquake in our coast, which wast almost 8.0 in the Ritcher scale.”

Habitat III is the first United Nations global summit after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals. It offers a unique opportunity to discuss the important challenge of how cities, towns, and villages are planned and managed in order to fulfill their role as drivers of sustainable development, and hence shape the implementation of new global development and climate change goals.
