The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is holding its 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP 22) from November 7-18 in Marrakech, Morocco. Negotiators from nearly 200 countries are convening to advance the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change that was struck at COP21 in December 2015. COP 22 presents a crucial opportunity to advance implementation of the Agreement, moving us further towards a zero-carbon, climate resilient world with a growing global economy.
The Hub is a free-access online capacity building portal meant to facilitate knowledge sharing, peer learning and collaboration in the field of sustainable urban transport and urban development in India. It is not only the absence of credible ground-level data, guidance documents for planning and design, knowledge of best practices and toolkits customized to local realities of our cities, that is an issue, but merely the lack of access to this information and these resources.
The Hub extensively bridges this gap to focus exclusively on research and learning filtered out as a part of WRI India’s work and engagement with cities, thus enabling effective utilization of data resources to improve the quality of life in cities. Access publications, research papers, data sets, videos, training material, toolkits and other ready-to-use resources developed by WRI India through its research work with different cities here: http://embarqindiahub.org/
