This thematic block will look at the leading and vertically integrated role that National Governments, Cities and Sub-national governments can play in forging pathways to low-carbon & resilient urban settlements. By sharing eye-opening experiences on (i) concrete collaborative actions to achieve significant emissions reductions in urban areas and (ii) tangible solutions to improve climate resilience for the most vulnerable urban dwellers, this thematic block will help better set up a collective framework for national and subnational governments and other non-state actors to match low-carbon developments and resilience in the LAC’s urban areas and informal settlements.
