Building Sustainable Cities and Life Styles in Latin America and the Caribbean

May 17, 2016 - May 20, 2016

17-20 May 2016

Join us in Costa Rica!

High-quality infrastructure, sustainable cities, modern energy supplies and adequate waste management facilities are widely seen as key factor in enabling consumers to adopt more sustainable lifestyles. This can be achieved by increasing investments by business and public authorities in resource-efficiency and CO2 reduction, and helping decision makers in government, business, NGO’s and private households to get access to adequate information, tools and methodologies. As a follow up of the World Resources Forum 2014, held in Peru, this conference will focus on the potential for change in the Latin American and Caribbean region, by showcasing best practices, identifying obstacles and discussing how to overcome them, and forging partnerships and agreements to start acting now.

The WRF LAC conference is held in conjunction with the annual International Congress on Habitat and Sustainable Cities alongside the International GREEN EXPO, reinforcing networks and bringing together people and organisations from all over the world to share experiences, learn and participate in an effective and timely technological transfer towards better building in the region.
