Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Urban Development

To avoid the worst impacts of climate change and to strengthen urban resilience, development activities need to follow low carbon and climate resilient pathways, promoting, for example, energy efficiency. This is especially the case in fast-growing cities across the world, where already vulnerable populations are also impacted by air pollution and poor building quality. The SDC is engaged in the development of diverse technologies, solutions and initiatives aimed at promoting healthy environments and resilient livelihoods, in particular amongst poorer urban communities.
