Press Release: Discours de la Commissaire Crețu à la session d’ouverture du Forum urbain mondial des Nations Unies

Aujourd’hui, la Commissaire en charge de la politique régionale et urbaine de l’UE, Corina Creţu, a représenté l’UE et ses Etats membres lors de la session plénière d’ouverture du 9ème Forum urbain mondial. 15 mois après le lancement du Nouvel Agenda Urbain, le Forum se concentre sur la mise en œuvre des objectifs du Programme de développement durable à l’horizon 2030. La Commissaire Crețu a déclaré: “Le Nouvel Agenda Urbain trace les contours ambitieux du travail qui reste à accomplir pour des milliers de villes, sur les cinq continents. L’UE est fortement attachée à sa mise en œuvre, d’autant plus qu’elle reflète bien la vision européenne d’un développement urbain durable. En effet, nous plaidons pour une approche intégrée, adaptée à la réalité des lieux et des populations, et qui prenne en compte la diversité des villes et leur contexte territorial plus large tout en s’appuyant sur les liens urbains-ruraux. L’Union européenne et ses États membres peuvent être fiers d’avoir contribué à façonner le Nouvel Agenda Urbain.” Retrouvez l’intégralité du discours en anglais de la Commissaire ici.
