In this meeting, a conference, an exhibition and several workshops presented viable clues in the sustainable development field. S-DEV Geneva 05 was mainly focusing on Sustainable Urban Development. It has been an international place for meetings and debates, which was dedicated to all the key economic players and decision makers who were looking for sustainable clues from Northern countries as well as from Southern countries.

During the annual debate and exchange platform, three main points have been underlined to take up the sustainable development challenges: economic growth and visibility, natural resources and environment preservation and finally social progress and equity.
