ICLEI webinar: Low carbon solutions for urban development challenges
This webinar is being held by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, a member of LEDS GP.
This webinar will be held twice on 22nd March at 9.00am GMT and again at 2.30pm GMT.
Local governments play a crucial role in defining and harnessing the benefits of urban low emission development pathways. However, they often lack the time and staff capacity to fully explore urban low emission development opportunities to remain up to date on current good practices and technology. This webinar, from ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, showcases the Solutions Gateway, an online knowledge sharing platform for local governments.
The Solutions Gateway provides in-depth guidance and expertise on proven solutions for low emission and sustainable development. It offers political decision makers the big picture on various hot topics from a single reliable source and provides them a platform to showcase local best practices, experts and technologies, while simultaneously offering detailed guidance and practice-oriented resources to technical staff tackling specific programs and projects. These resources include a pool of experts – a global multi-disciplinary network of professionals – and a finance decision-making support tool.
