About the event
With a population exceeding 22M and ranked currently as the 5th largest city in the world, Mexico City has large-scale water-food-energy challenges that it must mitigate to better serve its growing population. To pivot the water-food-energy issue from a problem at scale to an economic and social opportunity, a multi-stakeholder coalition has formed to showcase the circular transition as a potential solution. This session will focus on the importance of coalition building and multi-stakeholder engagement to lead Mexico City's circular city transformation and highlight the opportunities and challenges on the road ahead.
The event is in English and translated in Spanish.
