Sustainable and Resilient Cities

Sustainable cities are the key to a sustainable planet. Cities are home to about 50 percent of the world’s population, but they generate 80 percent of heat-trapping greenhouse gases, not to mention other forms of pollution.

Cities are consuming a disproportionate share of natural resources, which is contributing to resource depletion, global warming and climate change.

Many communities are taking steps to minimize their impacts on the environment and to minimize the threats that natural disasters pose to them. Hopefully, this site and our international awards program will help your community maximize the impact of its efforts, while assuring the support of all citizens.
