RTPI International

W2121 - RTPI International Audience Brochure Front COVERThe RTPI's recognises the work of planners worldwide who apply professional principles to help to create sustainable places to live. Planners are key in implementing global sustainable development.

Many countries face similar global challenges: climate change, rapid urbanisation, loss of natural habitats etc and dealing with the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War II.  Most, including the UK, have signed international agreements (e.g. Paris Climate Change Agreement and the New Urban Agenda) to try address these challenges. Planners play a key role in tackling these issues and implementing international commitments and the RTPI is championing this. Our latest briefing note Global Challenges and International Agreements on Sustainable Development provides further information.
