Event description
Side event hosted by UNDP and UN Habitat at COP 24 will explore ways to scale up action on resilient cities.

About this Event

Integrating the needs and priorities of urban areas into NAPs will enable countries to achieve more resilient and sustainable urban development while reaching the country’s NDC targets and directing climate finance into scaling up investment in urban resilience. However, this integration requires close cooperation between national governments, local authorities and non-state actors. In order to accelerate institutional engagement and scaling up climate change adaptation planning and implementation in urban areas and cities, UN-Habitat and UNDP are collaborating on the integration of urban issues and national adaptation planning. This includes a forthcoming supplement to the NAP technical guidelines called "Integrating Human Settlements into National Adaptation Plans" as well as supporting the articulation of urban priorities and participation of local authorities and municipalities in NAPs processes.
