What we do

We work with municipal governments to orientate the growth of their cities towards low carbon and climate resilient development, on the basis of:

Through:

Measuring the carbon and water footprints of the municipal governments as institutions

Measuring the carbon and water footprints of the cities as territories

Proposing footprint reduction responses and establishing reduction goals

Implementing demonstrative pilot projects to reduce the footprints

Involving key sectors and the general population in the measurement and reduction of the footprints

Creating capacities for measuring and monitoring the footprints within the municipal governments
