The objectives of the workshop were to introduce the Urban Pathways project to mobility, energy and waste management stakeholders in Africa, and to understand challenges and opportunities in implementing low-carbon urban energy, mobility and resource management solutions in Kenya and other countries in Africa.
The Urban Pathways project follows a structured approach to boost Low Carbon Plans for urban mobility, energy and waste management services that deliver on the Paris Agreement and the New Urban Agenda. The project develops national action plans and concrete local implementation concepts to boost low-carbon urban development in key emerging economies - India, Brazil, Kenya and Viet Nam. Key components are capacity building, establishment of partnerships and concrete project preparation.
