The international congress MetroSolutions will present and discuss possible solutions to the great current metropolitan threats and challenges that different metropolises are facing around the world. The two years of the COVID-19 pandemic have led to rethink those threats and challenges. Now, the unjustified war in Ukraine and the military escalation in the area have involved changes in International geopolitics and in the fragile balance of our economy, and have entailed a humanitarian tragedy of people displaced by the conflict. These facts have once again highlighted the importance of resilience and adaptation of cities and metropolises to conflict and post-conflict contexts. The Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) wants to enable a meeting space to synthesize and debate on the new emerged scenario at the geopolitical level, as well as at economic, social and health levels, which requires innovative solutions to cover citizens’ needs. Finally, this year marks the fifth anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Urban Agenda, so this is a good time to assess its performance and its metropolitan dimension.
