The third edition was attended by about 10,000 participants, more than 500 mayors of the largest cities in Brazil, 400 speakers, 17 international delegations from the 5 continents and the support of 109 national and international institutions. The next edition of EMDS will take place on April 24th to April 28th, 2017 in Brasilia/DF, and will feature the new generation of Brazilian mayors who will take office in January 2017, an appropriate time for reflection on the implementation of new urban agenda in Brazilian cities. At the side event, will be made a discussion about the accumulation of debates related to sustainable urban development in the last three editions of EMDS and will be discussed the prospects of absorption of the municipalities in New Urban Agenda. In this occasion, the National Association of Mozambican Municipalities (ANAMM) will promote a reflection about international experiences, especially Brazilian and Mozambican cities, of public policies in the urban planning that includes climate change adaptation. It is intended to promote the exchange of experiences in successful public policy planning of cities. It is hoped that with the exchange of information on different realities we can save resources, time and energy to make cities more resilient to climate change.
