Objective

Discuss challenges and innovative solutions on developing and implementing pro-poor urban policies and strategies for sustainable and resilient cities.

Presentation

In the framework of the Twenty Fifth Conference of Parties (COP25) to be held in Madrid on 2-13 December 2019, the European Union, in collaboration with UNECLAC and UN Habitat, will be hosting a dialogue on South-South and Triangular cooperation with a particular focus on cities and climate change, engaging national and sub-national government representatives from both Latin America and the Caribbean and Africa region.

The Dialogue will revolve around the need of good governance frameworks, supporting effective partnerships and shared responsibilities among different levels of government, communities and other stakeholders, concurring on key priorities and investments. Examples will be shared on practical initiatives to address the impact of climate change (adaptation) and to help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation).

National and local government representatives from the LAC and Africa regions will be invited to debate on common challenges and contextualized actions, in view of strengthening the so-called South-South and Triangular cooperation in the implementation of the New Urban Agenda as an accelerator to achieve the objectives of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
