Context to the Conference 

Urbanization, being the largest consumer of natural and man-made resources has become a matter of great concern in most countries. The rate at which it is occurring across the globe is threatening the entire eco-system and the life support on the planet. Whereas, there is precedence from many countries in terms of how to deal with the issues within their socio-political, economic and environmental context, however, these efforts are isolated. Therefore there is a need to understand and address the human habitat in its totality. This means that the economic, social and environmental interdependence has to be addressed as a balanced and mutually supportive synergy for sustainable development – a holistic approach to sustainable development where the human habitat is the focus has to be developed

Objectives

The objective of the Conference is to highlight the need for establishing synergies to promote a balanced development. This will create and promote awareness among the economic and social development decision-makers and planners, policy advisers and urban-rural development actors at the national and state levels.

The Conference would offer a platform to all the actors to pool, collate, synthesize and share experiences with a view to stimulating mutual learning, capacity-building and utilization. The participants are expected to share their countries’ and regions’ experiences and review current practices in this area.
