New Urban Agenda. What values do cities focus on today?

The largest megacities of the world realize while putting efforts in economic growth, they should also solve the questions connected with social and environmental development Therefore, many cities are committed to achieving sustainable development goals: from resource conservation to addressing issues in the field of education, health, social security and employment , formulated and adopted by the UN in 2015 In addition, city administrations realize that they will not be able to achieve these goals alone, so they create partnerships that help find an integrated approach to solving global problems.

  • How do cities adapt their own development priorities to the UN sustainable development goals?
  • What programmes aimed at achieving sustainable development is Moscow and other major megacities working with today?
  • What global alliances is Moscow part of? What benefits does the city get from participating in international partnerships?
