10:00 AM - 01:00 PM        (CR.4) Gateway Portals to the City - Infrastructure for Sustainable Urbanization.
This event has a dual purpose: to bring together examples of good practices from around the world; and two, to inspire policy makers to enable more innovative approaches to maximize the potential of these gateways. This will contribute to the preparations for The UN High-level Political Forum, the central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals, on the theme “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world", which will include a review of Goal 9. The event will make the case that the public sector is the ultimate guardian to ensure that gateways and infrastructure enable sustainable development without ‘leaving any one behind’, help connect rural and urban communities, and help to fight climate change. Fiscal realities call for creative synergies between the public and private sector.
