Support for the Brazilian National Agenda for Sustainable Urban Development
As of: January 2020
Objective and activities
The project aims at supporting the implementation of strategies for integrated sustainable urban development by federal/state/local actors. Strategies for mitigation and adaptation will be included, as well as urban-rural nexus and the important role of intact ecosystems, providing essential services for urban development. Existing regulations/tools/guidelines will be improved, expanded and tested through pilot projects. The approaches of integrated sustainable urban development will be integrated into public policies, city-oriented programs and funding lines. Training and dissemination activities will be designed to enable the application of these approaches by a wider range of communities and cities. In the medium run, cities will be able to comply with sustainability and climate change issues, as well as recognizing their crucial role as actors for implementing climate change policies. In addition, the GER-BRA Urbanization Partnership will support learning and exchange processes.
