Acting Global Director, WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities
Join us at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) to talk about the importance of multi-level governance in enabling zero-carbon, resource-efficient and socially equitable cities.
Organized by Brazil, Rwanda and CGEE (the Brazil-based Center for Strategic Studies and Management) with support from UrbanShift, this event will showcase examples of multi-level governance in practice, discussing how local and national governments, as well as the international community, can come together to achieve their climate goals.
Please email Elsa Lefevre if you have any questions.
While much more is needed ahead of COP26, here are the biggest signs of hope from UNGA and Climate Week, and what must happen next.
The three-day workshop brought together participants from 20 African cities to learn about and exchange ideas on climate action planning and nature-based solutions as tools to create greener, more resilient cities.
The Rwanda Urban Development Project II is one of nine UrbanShift local interventions, and focuses on climate resilient infrastructure, service delivery and ecosystem rehabilitation in Kigali and additional cities.
This UrbanShift webinar brought together a group of inspirational women to discuss how gender-inclusive urban planning and design can reshape gender roles and create safer, happier and more equitable cities for all.
