Iran Air said Sunday it had finalized a contract to buy 80 planes from US firm Boeing, the official IRNA news agency reported. “Fifty of the planes are 737 and the other 30 are the long haul 777 that will be delivered to Iran Air in a period of 10 years,” said Farhad Parvaresh, chief executive of the national carrier, who signed the contract with Boeing officials in Tehran. IRNA reported that the contract was worth $16.6 billion (15.7 billion euros). Following an initial agreement in June, the sale of the planes was given final approval by the US government in September. Washington lifted many of its sanctions on Iran under a nuclear deal that came into force in January, but many restrictions have remained in place that mean companies trading with Tehran must receive explicit approval from the White House.

The consultation is intended to bring together the eminent personalities from the Civil Society Organizations and and officials from the Government of India to begin a process of anchoring the Sustainable Development Goals  (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda (NUA) in India’s missions, policies and schemes.

Objectives;

  1. Map existing national urban development policies and strategies to commitments under the SDGs.
  2. Assess how we can achieve these goals, especially Goal 11, and unpack its linkages to the New Urban Agenda.
  3. Deliberate if the eradication of poverty and the “leave no one behind” agenda is rooted in India’s current urban policies – question what more needs to be done and what needs to be done differently to realise these goals.
  4. Develop an urban perspective on all other goals within the ideas of right to the city.
  5. Discuss the role of civil society in supporting the achievement of Goal 11 and the New Urban Agenda.
