|LOW CARBON CITY
Platform that promotes a social mobilization for the collective construction of Low Carbon Cities. Cities generate between 60 and 80% of energy consumption and about 70% of world’s GHG emissions (UN-HABITAT, 2016). Therefore, main solutions for tackling climate change should come from cities, and the responsibility for reducing GHG emissions must be carried out for all city- stakeholders. Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the UNFCCC Paris Agreement, and the importance of cities to mitigate climate change, the Low Carbon City Platform was created in December 2015, to foster a collectively construct of low carbon cities.
