By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Minister of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour, and Local Government, Oscar Requena virtually addressed the 4th Urban Economy Forum held at the World Urban Pavilion at Regent Park in Toronto, Canada, on Monday, October 3.

“Minister Requena was among the keynote speakers who spoke on this year’s theme of ‘Sustainable Urban Financing,’ which aims to advance the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 11 of building sustainable cities and communities,” said the Government of Belize Press Office in a press release.

Minister Requena spoke on the critical challenges affecting the urban sector, particularly insufficient financing and budget constraints, climate change impacts, urbanization, rising costs, infrastructure, and other economic and social issues.

“While highlighting these challenges, the minister also concentrated on the opportunities available for urban governments to build urban sustainability and resiliency through enhanced engagement with central government, the private sector, and especially, public-private partnerships, including strengthening relationships with the financing sector,” said the Press Office.

Requena told the 4th Urban Economy Forum that these efforts should be based on shared and collaborative partnerships driven by innovation and evidence.

“From a national perspective, Minister Requena emphasized the enabling environment created by the Government of Belize through the enhancement of legal and policy frameworks to support Belize’s investment and economic climate, including meaningful climate action,” said the GOB Press Office.
