Dr Sonia Roitman, UQ School of Earth and Environment Science and Dr Ali Berawi, UI Faculty of Engineering, will lead the forum. The theme of ‘Sustainable Urbanisation’ is closely linked to the four dimensions of Sustainable Development Goal 11 (SDG 11): sustainable, resilient, safe and inclusive cities. The sustainable urbanisation theme is also associated with:

  • Clean water and sanitation (SDG 6);
  • Industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9);
  • Inequalities (SDG 10); and
  • Partnerships (SDG 17).
