Cities as Drivers of Economic Growth – Meeting with the Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC

27 June 2018

Clive Harridge joined representatives from The Prince’s Foundation, the Commonwealth Association of Architects and the Commonwealth Local Government Forum in a meeting with The Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth at Marlborough House, London to discuss the opportunity provided by urbanisation to help deliver the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. They also discussed the challenges posed by rapid urbanisation, the need to build capacity, strengthen built environment policy and develop toolkits which are of practical use by communities and city leaders throughout the Commonwealth. The Secretary-General recognised that ‘Cities are one of  the drivers of economic  growth’ and offered her support to drive forward the cities agenda.  The meeting also provided an opportunity for Clive Harridge to present CAPs Survey of the Planning Profession in the Commonwealth which was highly praised
