About the webinar

International agendas acknowledge the importance of cities for a secure, equitable, resilient and sustainable future. This is especially relevant in Latin America, the most urbanized region in the world, where cities are highly vulnerable to climate change. Local governments play an essential role in achieving these objectives, since they are key in the design and implementation of local development policies that require a strong urban governance component, particularly participatory processes in decision-making, involving all the actors and ensure the implementation of actions to build climate resilience. But often  these local governments, mainly in medium and small -sized cities in the region, do not have the necessary information for climate action.

This webinar will present the Climate Resilient Cities Initiative and two experiences of implementation in six cities with different realities and contexts, which have managed to provide valuable information on the vulnerability of cities in a participatory manner and validated by key actors, who can report on actions concrete ways to build climate resilience. 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.
