Chicago, 8 March 2012. Sustainable development, like climate change, is a global, national and local issue. Action and cooperation among stakeholders at all levels – international, national and local government, private companies and citizens – is needed to forge a more sustainable and equitable path. In the wake of the global financial crisis, it is even more important that these actors work together to finance and implement a shift to sustainable urban growth.
