Tricia Hackett, IURC-Latin America, Leader of City to City Cooperation
Objective of the event
The IURC programme funded by the European Union (DG Regio and FPI) aims to lead and develop a form of decentralised urban and regional cooperation, in the fields of sustainable urban development and innovation, as part of the second phase of the International Urban Cooperation Programme (2016-2020).
The objective of this session is to provide a space to explore and discuss the experiences of three Latin American cities participating in the new phase of IURC in relation to the creation of successful public policies and pilot projects for emission reductions, climate change adaptation and protection of natural habitats. Case studies will highlight the important role of international cooperation programmes in achieving these actions.
Representatives from the cities of Barranquilla (CO), Belo Horizonte (BS) and Hermosillo (MX) will present their plans, achievements, and challenges on their way to creating and implementing innovative climate policies with a focus on just transition and inclusive participation.
