The subject of Liveable Cities in an urbanising World, to be discussed and analysed during our 47th Congress, implies that there must be an awareness among policy makers and, of course, planners in both the growing and developed economies, to the fact that all new developments must surely comply with the fundamental principles of sustainability. This encouraging possibility is forcing us to look at and evaluate the different options that have been applied globally in order to implement the defined policies for sustainability.

In Wuhan we will have interesting and dynamic discussions taking place under this challenging umbrella. Experts from all over the world will be present, planners and policy makers from the rapidly urbanising world will participate and share their experiences, and planners, experts, and policy makers from the emerging economies will also mutually share their problems and their proposed solutions.
