    New Delhi

    On 9 December, the UNU Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS), TERI and the School of Planning and Architecture, Bhopal,  will co-organize an International Conference on “Urban Development with Climate Co-Benefits: Aligning Climate, Environmental and Other Development Goals in Cities” in New Delhi, India.

    This conference will focus on how we can identify and generate large urban co-benefits or positive impacts for integrating climate change with local sustainable development goals in cities. These co-benefits can help us understand how we make social and technological transitions that can promote more sustainable urban initiatives that cut across sectors and regions and lead to radical impacts on the way our societies use environmental resources and distribute their benefits. The discussions will be based on empirical research conducted to understand the policies behind co-benefits in cities in India but will also cover international experiences.

    For more information, see the event announcement on the UNU-IAS website.
