Urban-LEDS I Newsletter #6
The Urban-LEDS project promotes low-emission urban development strategies in emerging economy countries. Jointly implemented by ICLEI and UN-Habitat and funded by the European Union, it helps cities to pursue low-carbon, sustainable development. This newsletter provides a brief overview of how the Urban-LEDS project was involved during the United Nations climate negotiations (COP21) in Paris, France in December 2015. This includes city participation in sessions at the Cities & Regions - TAP2015 Pavilion on climate finance, spatial planning, 100% renewable energy, carbon neutrality, as well as TAP project presentations.
This newsletter also covers some of the official COP21 side events featuring Urban-LEDS cities and insights to ICLEI’s crucial advocacy role in representing local and municipal authorities during the negotiations. We hope you enjoy this first newsletter of 2016 and we wish you a happy new year !
