CityLinks Primer on Subnational Approaches for Low Emission, Climate Resilient Development
The Primer is an introduction to the key principles and practices of low carbon, climate resilient development.
The Primer is an introduction to the key principles and practices of low carbon, climate resilient development. It includes resources and organizations which provide more in-depth guidance on planning and implementation. The Primer is a tool for local government officials, as well as development practitioners and international donor organizations to support the critical work being undertaken at the subnational level toward a low carbon, climate resilient and sustainable future.
The Primer was developed in collaboration with our partner, The Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the ICMA CityLinks project.
