URBAN PATHWAYS: Supporting Low-Emission Plans for Basic Urban Services in the Context of the New Urban Agenda

01 Oct 2017 to 30 Nov 2022


The project supported the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the NDCs within the framework of the New Urban Agenda (NUA) and the SDGs. It also supported national and local governments in key emerging economies with high mitigation potential in developing national action plans and concrete local implementation concepts to promote sustainable and low-emission urban development. The action plans summarised the political, technical, socio-economic and financial feasibility, while the local implementation concepts were further developed into bankable projects, with the focus on access to basic urban services. This process was then replicated at regional level through policy development, implementation support, advice for stakeholders and financing mechanisms.
