Session 1: Can Good Governance Prepare Cities for Disruptive Innovations?

Time: 9.00 am-10.30 am

With an increasingly volatile and uncertain global environment, public sector leadership will need to adapt quickly to fast-changing circumstances. Exacerbated by an increasingly active and vocal citizenry, it is critical for governments to be pragmatic, lead with a clear vision and collaborate with the private and people sectors to co-create solutions for a more liveable city. Is good governance alone sufficient to provide the right foundation for disruptive technologies?

Session 2: Let’s Talk about Money – How will Cities of the Future be Financed?

Time: 11.00 am – 12.30 pm (90min)

Financial resources are the crucial ingredients to turn masterplans into reality. In recent years, the Master Developer Approach and Public-Private Partnership have provided cities with alternative financial resources to develop and rejuvenate themselves. New financial institutions are set to catalyse changes to modern urban investment strategies. How can mayors work better with investors, capital markets, and stakeholders to tap into innovative resources and alternative models of urban financing and investment?
