Human activities in cities contribute to global greenhouse gas emissions. Meeting the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement will require a fundamental transformation of how urban infrastructure and services are planned, delivered and maintained. It will also require effective monitoring, reporting and tracking of performance.
The objective of Urban-LEDS II is to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by the promotion of Urban Low Emission Development Strategies (Urban-LEDS) that build resilience to climate change in cities/towns in emerging economies and least developed countries.
The project is funded by the European Union and implemented by ICLEI and UN-Habitat.
