By-invite roundtables co-organised with partners entail focused discussions between urban experts in the relevant topics, which create an ecosystem of synergies with the high-level content discussions at WCS tracks.
ULI Developers Roundtable
A Developer’s Perspective on the 4Ds of Transforming Cities
Organised by The Urban Land Institute, Jakarta Property Institute and the Centre for Liveable Cities. By-Invite only
1 August 2022, 1.00pm – 4.00pm
As cities grow denser, they continue to face intensifying pressures from ageing buildings, evolving lifestyles, and the climate crisis. To thrive, the urban development and real estate of cities must transform, by leveraging a 4D strategy – decarbonisation, digitalisation, decentralisation and disclosure.
This roundtable brings together leaders with deep regional experience to exchange knowledge on how the building and development sector in APAC cities are delivering on these four strategies, debate the strengths and tensions of different approaches, and strategise actionable steps to advance into the ‘new normal’.

Dynamic Cities: A New Way to Measure Progress
Hosted by Bloomberg New Economy in collaboration with the Centre for Liveable Cities. By-Invite only
2 August 2022, 8.00am – 10.00am
Urbanisation is the megatrend of all trends, under which we can perceive a broad range of regional and local shifts and risks. These include the global competition for resources and talent, pressures to decarbonise, demographic shifts, rising inequality, increased digitalization, and changing societal values. As all-encompassing ecosystems, cities provide the most efficient method to tackle these challenges and spur a dynamic recovery from the pandemic. This roundtable hosted by the Bloomberg New Economy Cities Council, co-organised by the Centre for Liveable Cities, will present the Bloomberg New Economy Dynamic Cities Framework as a guide for how to evaluate, track, and advance progress on a series of metrics that cities should focus on to become sustainable, vibrant, responsive hubs for talent and innovation.

Resilient Cities Network Roundtable
Accelerating Urban Water Resilience: On the Road to the 2023 UN Water Conference
Organised by the Resilient Cities Network and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, supported by the Centre for Liveable Cities. By-Invite only.
2 August 2022, 8.30am – 10.00 am
Cities are on the frontlines of dealing with the shocks and stresses caused by water- too much or too little. City policies, investments and the behaviors of their residents will determine their resilience to future impacts. Investments must be inclusive, embracing the cross sectoral power of water to unite our communities, build lasting partnerships and empower cities to become more resilient.
The Resilient Cities Network and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, supported by the Centre for Liveable Cities, will convene a high-level roundtable for city leaders and partners to galvanize opportunities and to bring conversations on building water and climate resilience in cities to the forefront.
