Emphasis is placed on equitable access to these urban basic services, especially for the poor. It promotes the development of clean, energy efficient, affordable, and human-centred cities that can deliver better services to their citizens, while at the same time making the most effective use of natural resources and cutting down on on fossil fuel reliance and energy consumption.
