Topic 6a Land Use and Planning


This topic aims to contribute directly to SDG 9, by creating a forum on promoting quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including regional and trans-border infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being (UN, 2015).

We also aim to study effective means of facilitating sustainable and resilient infrastructure development through enhanced financial, technological and technical support to developing countries (UN, 2015).
