Urban-LEDS II Project – Rwanda
ICLEI and UN-Habitat, Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) | Kigali, Rwanda |

Overview

ICLEI and UN-Habitat, Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA)

UN-Habitat and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability are expanding their work on low emission planning. The project recognizes that human activities in cities contribute a significant and growing proportion of global greenhouse gas emissions, driving the demand for energy and other services in urban areas with rapid population growth. Meeting the ambitious goals of the Paris Climate Agreement will require a fundamental transformation of how urban infrastructures and services, such as transport, energy, water, waste and urban space, are planned, delivered and maintained. It will also require effective monitoring, reporting and tracking performance. Urban-LEDS II aims to contribute to this vital component of international climate action, with a focus on local needs and the role of all levels of government to enable action.
