Gwanju City Cooperation

In the context of the Urban Environmental Accords, signed by more than a hundred cities to achieve sustainable development at city level, UNEP is cooperating with the City of Gwangju (South Korea). The initiative aims at developing and documenting approaches and tools for cities to promote green growth, resource-efficiency and the development of low carbon cities. Expected outputs include the development of a global framework to assess the environmental performance of cities and to explore the feasibility of developing a methodology for a Clean Development Mechanism at city-wide level.
