Smart eco cities

Updated: Jan 18

The concept of “Sustainable Cities and Communities” of the World Bank’s Urban, Disaster Risk Management, Resilience and Land Global Practice (GPURL) includes four key dimensions:

  • First, Sustainable Communities are environmentally sustainable in terms of cleanliness and efficiency.

  • Second, Sustainable communities are resilient to social, economic, and natural shocks. They are well prepared for natural disasters, which are increasing in intensity and frequency due to climate change.

  • Third, Sustainable Communities are inclusive communities. They bring all dimensions of society and all groups of people—including the marginalized and vulnerable—into their markets, their services, and their development.

  • And finally, Sustainable Communities are competitive communities that can stay productive and generate jobs for members of the community.

It will mobilise cities willing to step up their actions in five areas of environmental management:

· Improving air quality;

· Enhancing nature and biodiversity;

· Reducing noise pollution;

· Improving municipal waste management and advancing the circular economy;

· Improving the quality of water bodies and the efficiency of water use.
