Communitas is a coalition for sustainable cities & regions led by its core partners - Tellus Institute,ICLEI- Local Governments for Sustainability, nrg4SD- Network of Regional Governments for Sustainable Development and UN-Habitat - with the support of the Ford Foundation, the Charles Léopold Mayer Foundation, and the European Union. Our technical methodology is based on thematic work groups led by experts producing issues papers with proposals for urban targets in close consultation with a multi-stakeholder advisory committee. On 5-6 December 2013, the Communitas Coalition held its first Experts’ Workshop - in collaboration with UN DESA, Member States Friends of Cities, Major Groups & Stakeholders and the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN SDSN) - to enable governments to discuss informally with experts, Major Groups and stakeholders and the UN system the issue of sustainable urbanization in the future SDGs framework and UN development agenda. By building on the lessons learned and the results achieved by the MDGs, the workshop’s vision was to advance just, prosperous and sustainable city-regions as a key element of the overall new UN Development Agenda; and therefore capitalize on the megatrend of urbanization in order to halt growing inequality and longstanding poverty at the city-region scale within the framework of sustainable development. This document as of December 2013 compiles First Draft Issues Papers discussed at Experts’ Workshop. .:. Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform
