Climate Smart Cities

As of: May 2020

Objective and activities

The dynamic urbanisation in India represents an enormous challenge for the development of urban infrastructure. With high rates of economic growth, the rapid increase in urban population is accompanied by changes in consumer and mobility behavior. As producers of growing greenhouse gas emissions, Indian cities play an increasingly important role for the challenging implementation of national climate policy. The project aims to anchor climate-smart solutions for the urban infrastructure provision in the “smart cities mission” of the Indian government. By supporting the implementation of sustainable infrastructure measures and urban area development in selected cities greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced. These measures will be complemented by trainings, the introduction of climate impact monitoring as well as networking events to communicate practical experience and knowledge.
