As a “Made in Canada” initiative, the WCCD leadership attended a reception in Abu Dhabi hosted by Canada’s Ambassador to the UAE, Marcy Grossman, and High Commissioner to Kenya and Canada’s Representative to UNEP and UN-Habitat. Joined by other Canadian innovators in the urban space, Dr. McCarney and Mr. Patava had the opportunity to share the WCCD’s experiences in Canada and globally with ex-pats, government representatives, and other Canadians present at the WUF. Of particular interest at the event was the WCCD’s “Data for Canadian Cities” project which is being framed as a model for the growth of the WCCD network of cities in countries across the world.
