Connecting Stakeholders to Boost
Sustainable Development

Climate Change and Cities is a susbtancial book/report, recently published by  the University Climate Change Research Network at the Cambridge University Press (links: UK / USA). It has been recognized as innovative and impactful, with concrete opportunities for continued contribution to the field of urban planning and urban design. The confluence of research and operational application is providing a blueprint for how to convincingly configure sustainable and climate-resilient urban districts. 

2018 - 2019 has been marked with many activities and partnerships' development on support to civil society, sustainability, climate adaptation and resilience of ecosystems, support to dialogue, justice and womens' rights.
