We would like to draw your attention to a recent publication from UNEP, for which ENERGIES 2050 is the lead author: Climate Finance for Cities and Buildings: A Handbook for Local Government
This Handbook aims to help raise awareness among local stakeholders regarding climate finance in the built environment. It has been developed in response to recognized need for a synthesis of the ‘what, why and how’ of climate finance for cities and buildings.
It covers the following topics: challenges and opportunities for GHG mitigation in cities and buildings; the role of cities in the UNFCCC climate negotiations; key considerations for MRV (measurement, reporting and verification); the main climate finance mechanisms and their relevance to the urban context. A series of relevant urban case studies from around the world are also included.
Low carbon cities and buildings are an important part of ENERGIES 2050’s vision and activities for an inspired and sustainable future.
To invite sharing and developing additional content we kindly invite you to consult the UNEP Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative (UNEP-SBCI) in which ENERGIES 2050 participates, as well as the Francophonie’s Initiative for Sustainable Cities, co-founded by the IFDD (Institut de la Francophonie pour le Développement Durable) and ENERGIES 2050. Do not hesitate to contact us for any follow up.
