Organiser: Sustainable Development of Urban Regions (SURE)
The SURE status seminar takes a snapshot of the ongoing research and elevates sustainable urban transformation discourse. During the two-day seminar, the sessions take stock of global, regional and local pathways and strategies for multisectoral collaboration to build transformative urban-rural adaptation and resilience for sustainable futures. Eminent researchers frame the event and provide a global perspective on sustainable transformation trends and pathways for cities.

The development of urban regions in Southeast Asia and China faces challenges due to growing dynamism, complexity, and pressure to act. Following the call for new collaborative approaches on the urban and rural development that put people first, aligned with the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) promotes applied research through the funding priority »Sustainable Development of Urban Regions«. Ten collaborative projects within the SURE framework develop concepts and test locally implementable solutions and strategies for sustainable transformation of fast-growing urban regions in Southeast Asia and China.
