Addressing Climate Change through National Urban Policy

UN Habitat Climate Change Planning Unit

This session intends to discuss the nexus of climate change and national urban policy. The session’s five person panel will discuss how strong integration of climate change can enhance National Urban Policies and provide a modality through which international agreements can be implemented effectively by local actors through national level coordination and support. With “promising practice” examples from approved NUPs, the UN-Habitat publication Addressing Climate Change in National Urban Policy will serve as a driver of conversation and with discussion on how the recommendations in the publication can be implemented in pilot countries.
