World Class Sustainable Cities (WCSC) 2022
The City of Kuala Lumpur will host the ‘13th International Conference on World Class Sustainable Cities 2022 (WCSC 2022)’ to be held on Tuesday, 13th September 2022 at the Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This year’s 13th WCSC conference series is themed ‘KL2040: Towards A Liveable Urban Future’ which will focus and explore on how and what proactive steps need to be taken for cities to be a ‘Resilient, Sustainable & Liveable City’ in achieving a better quality of life in the areas of social inclusiveness, affordability, housing, accessibility, mobility, health, education, safety & security, vibrant public spaces and reducing carbon emissions to meet the impacts of global climate change.
“UN Habitat’s programme for Urban Resilience is the ability of any urban system to withstand and recover quickly from the impact of all plausible hazards, and maintain continuity of functions. Its objectives are to provide national and local governments with reliable tools for assessing and improving the resilience of cities to multi-hazard impacts, including those related to climate change, and improving the basis upon which decision making in urban planning, development and governance are made. Thus, a resilient urban system needs to be inclusive, adaptable and persistent in order to make cities more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable, while recognizing that it will take time to ensure a better and safer future for all citizens,” highlighted Mr Chan Jin-Wy, WCSC 2022 Organizing Chairman.
