Joint Work Programme


UN-Habitat, UNEP, the World Bank and Cities Alliance have joined forces in taking on the issue of cities and climate change. The joint work programme aims to contribute to a more coordinated and focused response to issues, which cities are facing, in particular in developing countries. Initiatives of the JWP include developing a global standard on greenhouse gas emissions originating from cities, editing a joint position paper on cities and climate change, the harmonization of approaches to urban risk assessments and the development of an online knowledge centre on cities and climate change.
