Capacity building project for low carbon and climate resilient city development in India (CapaCITIES)
India is facing the challenges of rapid urbanisation, growing urban poverty and risks posed by climate change. Integrating climate change strategies in urban planning and governance through a combination of measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to cope with the effects of a changing climate have been identified as a key approach for sustainable cities in India. SDC aims to support this approach by building up capacities of national and city authorities, transferring expertise and best practices in selected sectors, and facilitating learning among cities.
