The Sustainable City, a key driver for social transformation in Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean
Every year since 2012, the EU-LAC Foundation organises with its strategic partner Institut des Amériques (IdA) and supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the French Co-operation Agency (AFD), an international colloquium within the Latin America and the Caribbean week in France. The Colloquium is focused on a topic of importance for the EU-Latin America and the Caribbean Association, and invites distinguished experts from the EU and LAC to present and discuss the results of recent analyses and participate in the formulation of policy recommendations.
In 2018, the main topic of the event was “The sustainable city, key driver for social transformation in Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean”, coordinated by Catherine Paquette, a member of the French Institute of Research for Development (IRD). The Colloquium focused on the implementation of the sustainable city under an inclusive approach.
Based on the inputs from the speakers and interviews conducted among the participants, this book presents some of the topics addressed during the Colloquium, as well as a summary of the event.
