Strengthening Climate Action and Resilience Planning for Bengaluru

A Summary of Key Takeaways From a Series of Consultative Sessions With Experts, Organizations and Practitioners in Bengaluru

Bengaluru is one of the fastest-growing cities in India. The pressure of urbanization has impacted not only the natural resources and ecological networks in the city region but also the city’s liveability.

To tackle these challenges, Bengaluru joined the C40 Cities network in 2017 and as part of its commitment, is preparing a data-driven, inclusive, and collaborative climate action plan with a focus on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and building healthy, equitable and resilient communities.

The Bengaluru Climate Action and Resilience (BCAP) has been prepared by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the Government of Karnataka, in collaboration with C40 Cities and WRI India as knowledge partner. As part of the preparation process, a series of consultative sessions, with practitioners and representatives from academia, think tanks, NGOs, were held covering sectors such as stationary energy and buildings, transportation, solid waste, air quality, water, wastewater and stormwater, urban planning and disaster resilience, green cover, and biodiversity. These conference proceedings summarize the key takeaways from these consultations.
