On the occasion of the 9th World Urban Forum (WUF 9), the Global Initiative for Resource Efficient Cities, through its partner Ecocity Builders is launching a multimedia series about urban metabolism and its utility in city planning and management. This first segment uses Ecocity’s Urbinsight Cusco pilot as an example of a participatory approach to studying material flows.

These educational videos produced by Ecocity Builders in coordination with the Sustainability Institute and UN Environment seek to equip city managers and practitioners with the tools and know-how to build and transition to low-carbon, resilient, and resource efficient cities using integrated systems approaches such as urban metabolism.
