Cities & Water
In the second event of Canning House's Sustainable Development series, with support from CAF - Development Bank of Latin America and Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), we focus on urban planning and sustainable water solutions in Latin America.
We welcome speakers with expertise across the infrastructure sector, from urban planning to sustainable water solutions, who will detail case studies from the region. The conference will close with a discussion on the projects in the region that are currently available for UK stakeholders to support and the scope for future investment.
Canning House's Sustainable Development series of events and conferences focuses on the themes of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the aims of the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in a Latin American context. This event addresses SDGs #11 Sustainable Cities & Communities and #6 Clean Water & Sanitation.
