As part of the preparation of the conference "Habitat III" of the United Nations, to be held in Quito on October 17-20, 2016, Grenoble-Alpes Metropole and INTA organised on June 24, in Grenoble, a seminar in order to prepare the reflections of the contribution of INTA at Habitat III.
How the energy transition will be deployed in urban agendas?
States and local governments face the impacts of climate change and the depletion of natural resources, in they thus must think about a new energy model, more sustainable and lower-carbon economy. According to UN estimates, by 2060, two-thirds of the world population will live in urban areas. It means that 2.5 billion extra people will live in urban areas. The resilience of our development system will inevitably depend of the adaptation capacity of the cities to climate change. The necessary transitions must cut across housing, supply of energy, water treatment and population displacements. All topics where we need to innovate to make cities more sustainable.
