Urban-LEDS I Newsletter #2
The Urban--‐LEDS project responds to the fact that cities emit a large proportion of the world’s greenhouse gases and can take steps to reduce emissions. Citiesin Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Africa are outlining their Urban Low Emission Development Strategies (Urban--‐LEDS) and exploring implementation of a range of activities. In each country, two Model Cities are assisted in formulating and adopting their Urban--‐LEDS, and share their experiences with Satellite Cities, which observe, learn and share their own experiences. Experienced European Cities support the process, sharing their own experiences and know--‐how.
