Dear readers,

Was Habitat III, the UN conference that ended in Ecuador last week, a success? Oliver Lah took part for us. He has been actively involved in the international urban project SOLUTIONS, the UEMI and SUSTAIN EU-ASEAN for years; in Quito he presented, amongst other things, the SOLUTIONS approaches for a low-carbon urban mobility that were included in the official "New Urban Agenda". The Habitat III Conference provided a great opportunity for international exchange on the key challenges cities are facing and ways to address these challenges through partnerships, says Lah. What happens next? Oliver Lah: "We will continue to work with our networks and broaden these partnerships by working more closely with UN-Habitat, the German Cities Association and others to implement sustainable urban development solutions that can deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement and the New Urban Agenda."

Enjoy!
