The event would revolve around the theme: “Bridging Cities, Transforming Lives." Aligned with the goals of the 2011-2016 Philippine Development Plan, the theme articulates the commitment of the Philippine cities to be more proactive in the pursuit of sustainable development. It also recognizes the major role of cities worldwide in providing high quality public services and shaping the development of countries. In order for cities to perform these crucial roles, however, they must effectively address evolving and cross-cutting urban development issues and challenges.
The event will bring together key governance stakeholders across the globe, to discuss urban issues and concerns, share innovative solutions, and synergize strategies to pursue inclusive development.
