Exhibitors at Resilient Cities 2017

Various organisations, research institutions and business have confirmed their attendance as exhibitors at Resilient Cities 2017, showcasing their work and projects: 

UN-Habitat

UN-Habitat is the United Nations programme working to promote socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements development and the achievement of adequate shelter for all. Mandated by the UN General Assembly in 1978 to address the issues of urban growth, it is a knowledgeable institution on  urban development processes, and understands the aspirations of cities and their residents.

UN Environment

Established in 1972 by the UN General Assembly, the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the UN system, and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is responsible for formulating the principles and strategies of German development policy, which form the basis of cooperation with partner countries and international organisations. Sustainable urban development is recognised as a key element for achieving international development and climate goals and therefore constitutes a significant field of German development policy. BMZ actively contributes to shape the international debate on urbanization and works together with partners to create livable cities for all.

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) leads the efforts in ensuring food security and nutrition for all. It aims to eradicate hunger and food insecurity, eliminate poverty, and assure the sustainable management of natural resources. FAO’s applies a holistic and integrated approach to city region food systems (CRFS) contributing to building a dynamic, resilient and sustainable food system with stronger urban-rural linkages that ensures improved food and nutrition security for urban and peri-urban dwellers.

RUAF Foundation

RUAF is a leading centre of expertise and Global Partnership on sustainable Urban Agriculture and Food Systems. RUAF seeks to contribute to the development of sustainable cities by facilitating awareness raising, knowledge generation and dissemination, capacity development, policy design and action planning for resilient and equitable urban and peri-urban agriculture and urban food systems.

CGIAR WLE

The CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE) promotes an innovative landscape approach to sustainable intensification of our food and agriculture systems. WLE’s Flagship program on Rural-Urban Linkages, co-led by the RUAF Foundation and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) is dedicated to applied research on city-region food systems and the safe recovery of water, nutrients and energy from urban waste streams for reuse in agriculture.

EUROCLIMA & Adapt-Chile

EUROCLIMA, financed by the European Commission, aims to promote green growth and to reinforce the resilience of Latin America to climate change. Local communities can learn from experiences in other Latin American countries. Therefore EUROCLIMA supports the initiatives of Adapt-Chile, a not-for-profit organization based in Chile, that works since 2013 to identify, develop and promote responses to climate change at the local level.

European Green Capital

The European Green Capital Award promotes and rewards the efforts of cities that are committed to improving the urban environment.

European Green Leaf Award is a competition aimed at cities, with between 20,000 and 100,000 inhabitants, to recognise their achievements in green growth.

xylem

Derived from classical Greek, our name refers to the supporting tissues that help transport water and nutrients from a plant's roots to its leaves. To the people of Xylem, our name stands for our promise to live our values while solving our customers' most challenging water problems, and to set industry standards for fluid technology applications and water solutions.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Munich RE

Most cities worldwide don’t uphold WHO air quality guidelines, causing millions of premature deaths every year. Fixing this problem requires vast amounts of air quality data, which traditional solutions cannot yield. Hawa Dawa, a Munich Re Fellowship startup, developed a bottom-up air quality monitoring technique, providing remote, real-time & in-situ air quality data anywhere, anytime: essential database for change and prevention.

carbonn® Climate Registry (cCR)

The carbonn® Climate Registry (cCR) is the world´s leading reporting platform to enhance transparency, accountability and credibility of climate action of local and subnational governments. Over 720 cities and regions representing over 9% of the world’s total population are reporting greenhouse gas inventories, mitigation targets, adaptation commitments, climate hazards, and climate / energy actions. Reporting entities of the cCR have committed over 1 GtCO2e of emissions reductions by 2020. Many of them are starting to report on adaption and resilience, also through the Durban Adaptation Charter. The cCR serves as the reporting platform of 15 global initiatives, and is the central database of the Compact of Mayors.

EcoMobility World Festival 2017, Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung City, the second largest city in Chinese Taipei will host the 3rd EcoMobility World Festival in October 2017.
