Understanding low-carbon policies in urbanising cities
Population growth in West Africa, South and South-East Asia is expected in rapidly urbanising small and medium-size cities. However, these sites lack the infrastructure to meet low-carbon transition needs, since they are outside the global networks of climate policies. The EU-funded LO-ACT project will offer the first multidimensional estimation of low-carbon action in cities seeking to cooperate in a new understanding of global environmental politics and urban governance. The project will examine the ideal local actions of global environmental policies during the past 30 years, analyse the mobility of low-carbon urban policies in transport, energy and housing, and compare urban trajectories in 113 cities.
