World Resources Report Synthesis Launch: Seven Transformations for More Equitable and Sustainable Cities

Join WRI for the launch of the capstone report in the World Resources Report series, Towards a More Equal City. Synthesizing six years of research from 160 authors and reviewers, the report presents a new vision for urban planning and development that can lead to better quality of life for under-served urban residents, and citywide economic and environmental benefits. Seven crucial transformations show how to reimagine urban service provision, how to include the excluded, and how to create the enabling conditions for real, lasting change. As the world looks to recover from COVID-19 and accommodate the more than 2.5 billion people that will be added to cities by 2050, the stakes—for vulnerable communities, our economy, our planet, and our common future—could not be higher. Decisions made today can widen the “urban services divide” in ways that grow harder to reverse and worsen the risks of climate change. But cities can also lead transformative change for people and the environment. Hear from global and local leaders and WRI experts on how to spur action and create more equal, prosperous, and sustainable cities for all.
