Urban-Act: Integrated Urban Climate Action for low-carbon & resilient cities - Preparation phase

Urban-Act supports a transformation of urban development in China, Indonesia, Philippines, India and Thailand towards low-carbon & resilient development. It contributes to NDC implementation in coherence with SDG and CBD targets. Urban-Act follows a whole-of-government approach and strengthens the enabling national frameworks for collaborative climate action as well as the capacities of cities to engage in climate dialogue and climate action. Urban-Act supports the development of climate-sensitive Integrated Urban Development Plans (IUDP) and facilitates innovative climate measures in the priority sectors transport and building. It thereby contributes to creating tangible mitigation and adaptation results. Policy frameworks are enhanced focusing on coordination and financial incentives for climate-sensitive urban development. Systematic regional engagement of all 5 countries contributes to regional agenda setting, knowledge sharing and scaling up of best practices.
