Cities are among the key contributors to greenhouse gas emissions as well as hot spots regarding the impacts of climate change. However, cities can also be innovators and models of environmental efficiency. By pursuing climate actions, offer exceptional opportunities to generate growth and employment, well-being, and savings from avoided health costs and fossil fuel expenditure.

The project is advancing concepts of climate action planning in Indian cities, accelerating their transformation to low carbon, climate resilient cities. The webinar will showcase planning processes and solutions around eco-mobility, integrated water resource management, energy management and sustainable waste Management.
