About the webinar

The City Footprints project arose from the need to support municipal governments and decision makers in the transition that their cities must go through to low carbon development and resilient to the effects of climate change. In five years of implementation, the project supported the design of policies, action plans and mitigation and adaptation projects in 12 cities in Latin America, and contributed to strengthen decision-making processes in urban planning and management including the climate change variable .

The  webinar will present the results of the project, the adjustments made to the water footprint methodology to be applied in cities, and the experience of the Reduction of Footprints Action Plan of the City of Cuenca, Ecuador. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.
