Celebrating the World Cities Day, October 31, IFFD co-organized and took part on the event Accessible Cities United, Enabling future cities to be smart.
By 2030 more than 60% of the world’s population is projected to live in cities. Urban centers will face key challenges in ensuring that the needs of people living in hardship are met. As cities become smart, they must also provide equal access to the benefits of technological progress for vulnerable social groups and leave no one behind.
This event organized at the UN HQ served as a platform for experts to share their knowledge and identify solutions to the challenges smart cities will face in offering accessible infrastructure, services and information.
