The urbanization process is strongly linked to social and economic development and cities can mitigate its negative externalities through a coordinated approach and clear policy directions.
 
In most developing countries, urbanization is leading to enormous changes in the spatial distribution of people, resources, as well as the use and consumption of land.
 
Although urban issues are increasingly prominent on national policy agendas, many countries still lack the supporting policies and frameworks that can leverage the process and guide it towards sustainable patterns.
 
CODATU wishes to enhance its participation in the World Urban Campaign aiming to emphasize the role of urban mobility in the New Urban Agenda and this Webinar will be in line with the « The accessibility that we need » Message from Codatu to Habitat III. The Webinar will be structured like a radio program or TV set through a platform (mavisionconférence.org) that will allow speakers and audience to connect via internet; a chat will also allow a live Q&A exchange with the audience.
This Webinar organised leverage on the activities of the Community of Practice for Sustainable Urban Transport in the Mediterranean, a CODATUAFDCMI and World Bank project whose main purpose is organizing the knowledge sharing and enabling the exchange between experts in order to facilitate the joint development of solutions for an integrated and sustainable urban transport in Middle-East and North-Africa countries.
