The Role of Cities - Key Messages from G7 Toyama Environment Ministers' Meeting Parallel Session

In the lead-up to the G7 Japan 2016 Ise-Shima Summit, the G7 Toyama Environment Ministers’ Meeting (EMM) was held in Toyama City on 15 and 16 May 2016, with the main themes of “Climate Change and Related Measures,” “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” and “The Role of Cities.” At the Parallel Session on “The Role of Cities” held on 15 May, the Mayors from leading cities in G7 member countries and representatives from international organisations shared innovative approaches and adopted the Co-chairs' summary. The key essence of the summary was reported to the G7 Environment Ministers during the G7 Toyama EMM morning session on 16 May and generated much interest. This ISAP Special Session invites Mr. Masashi Mori, Mayor of Toyama City and Co-chair of the Parallel Session, to report the results of this important meeting and will discuss possible next steps that cities can play in achieving a sustainable society.
