Cities and Climate Change Initiative CCCI


UN-Habitat, through its Cities and Climate Change Initiative (CCCI) supports local governments to more readily respond to the climatic threats faced by cities and their populations (building Climate Resilience). It further aims to take steps in reducing cities’ climate footprint (Climate Change Mitigation).

CCCI is now globally active in 40 cities. UN-Habitat provides support in the development of climate change vulnerability assessments and climate change action plans. In some countries CCCI supports policy processes: urban and local government concerns are integrated in climate change policies and urban policies need to recognize climate change

A number of tools in support of local action have been developed. Capacity development programmes in partnership with local government training institutes and universities are underway.
