If urbanisation drives climate change, then mitigating the dangerous effects of global warming must address how we plan, build and live in cities. Implementing bold national plans requires active cross-sector coordination and collaboration between the local, regional and national governments.
The IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5°C reaffirms the urgency of the Paris Agreement. To avoid dangerous consequences, global greenhouse gas emissions must reach net-zero by 2050. While the international UNFCCC climate regime has managed to orchestrate national climate commitments, current national mitigation targets fall well short of achieving the low-carbon transformation.
Our expert roundtable brings together IKI projects working on vertical integration and local climate action across diverse geographies such as South Africa, Mexico and Indonesia.
We are thrilled to announce the V-LED Southeast Asia Lessons Learnt Workshop: “Moving forward climate action of cities in Vietnam and the Philippines”. The event will reflect on four years of V-LED working on multi-level climate governance and local climate action.
How can sub-national and non-state actors harness innovation & technology for local climate action? To answer this question, UN-Habitat in partnership with the Climate Change Comission, are organising a good practice exchange to learn from successful climate change initiatives from cities and provinces in the Philippines.
As a final event in Kenya, V-LED is convening stakeholders from local communities and civil society, county and national governing officials and the private sector to discuss multi-level climate governance and ways forward. This day-long ‘Lessons Learnt’ event on Nov 8 in Kwale County, will reflect on four years of project operations and prompt participants to identify good practices and objectives to continue pursuing.
Stakeholders from county and national government, civil society, and the private sector will gather on November 7 to discuss financing for local climate action and multi-level governance of climate change in Kenya. The event is the first of two workshops marking the conclusion of the V-LED project in Kenya and includes the launch of two key project publications.
In cooperation with MOC and MONRE, UN-Habitat aims to further boost Vietnam’s climate ambitions through a dialogue event and good practice exchange on urban climate actions.
To contribute to the capacity building for local authorities on planning and implementing local climate actions, UN-Habitat in association with the DCC-MONRE is organising a forum on local climate finance in Hanoi.
V-LED is excited to announce a Lessons Learnt event in Kenya. A two-day event to be held on November 7-8 in Kwale County will examine four years of V-LED operations in Kenya.
