Thank you very much to all of you for your valuable contributions to the discussion.

Among the challenges mentioned were integrated approaches and commitment towards green energy.

As for recommendations, I would like to highlight the need for Innovative and productive cities; Green, compact, resource efficient and resilient cities; Inclusive and safe cities and Good urban governance as stated in the Prague Declaration – https://www.habitat3.org/bitcache/a021391bdbf08fb1163a989bd9b9f7ad452501af?vid=574315&disposition=inline&op=view

According to the recent agreement in Paris-2015 and commitment towards green energy, renewable energy source should be incorporated in urban development. That is why I want to introduce following agenda, “Strategies to avoid the dirty energy for sustainable urban development”.

Yes, you´re right. It is really relevant. Have you any suggestions in which kind of documents it should be incorporated? National Urban Policy, strategies of cities,…or even at the international level?

Dear František,

Yes, I fully agree. One of the important tools are Integrated territorial Investments (ITI). We have implemented the ITI into the Regional Development Strategy as an important part of Territorial dimension as well as in the Partnership Agreement with the European Commission. Looking forward to hearing other options and views!

I’m delighted to be moderating this discussion and looking forward to hearing from you. In particular, I’m interested in integrated urban development. Let me start the discussion by saying that it is really crucial for our cities to integrate different spheres of urban life, incl. housing. I look forward to a useful discussion.Which tools ae the most convenient?”
