To support the achievement of national goals under the Paris Agreement and enable climate-resilient urban development, the Indian Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) has launched a pioneering initiative called the “ClimateSmart Cities Assessment Framework (CSCAF),” covering more than 130 cities across the country. The CSCAF’s objective is to provide cities with a mechanism for setting a baseline and developing a roadmap to tackle climate change. What can cities elsewhere learn from this example?
Join us as we continue the UrbanShift webinar series with this important discussion on how cities are mainstreaming climate action within urban development activities while advancing smart city strategies.
Young people must be involved in critical decisions concerning their future and given an active role in addressing the climate emergency. Join UrbanShift for a lively discussion on this topic on International Youth Day.
Cities from Asia, Africa and Latin America exchanged knowledge about integrated sustainable urban development at UrbanShift's first global in-person advocacy event and learned first hand from the experiences of host city Malmö, Sweden.
At the ICLEI World Congress in Malmö, Sweden, UrbanShift cities from Asia, Africa and Latin America met to share knowledge on best practices in local sustainable development and learnt firsthand from Malmö’s sustainability initiatives.
While many sub-national governments are already undertaking direct or indirect climate actions, data aggregation and reporting remain a major challenge. One key way to facilitate sub-national reporting is to showcase best practices, like the CSCAF.
