Statement (G77 + CHINA)  

Almost a year ago,representatives from all around the world gathered in Rio de Janeiro and reiterated their commitment to sustainable development, recognizing once more the need to adopt a threefold approach – economic, social and environmental.Nothing shows more clearly how intertwined are these three dimensions of sustainable development than the dynamics of cities, which clearly reveals that a shortcoming in one of them adversely impacts the others.

Statement (INDIA)  

Today, the world is in the midst of a massive urban transition unlike that of any other time in history. We live today, for the first time in history, in an urban century- more than half of us live in cities, and we’re headed toward 70% of people living in urban areas by 2050- a change with vast implications both for human well-being and for the environment. Almost all of this growth will be taking place in developing countries where urban populations are growing at over 3 percent per year, as opposed to less than 1 percent in the more developed regions.
