Urban Pathways - Delivering on the New Urban Agenda
Urban Pathways - Supporting Low Carbon Plans for Urban Basic Services in the context of the New Urban Agenda
The Urban Pathways project helps delivering on the Paris Agreement and the NDCs in the context of the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. The project follows a structured approach to boost Low Carbon Plans for urban mobility, energy and waste management services, working on concrete steps towards a maximum impact in cities to global climate change mitigation efforts and sustainable and inclusive urban development.
Webinar I 14th October, 4 pm (CEST) 5 pm (EAT)
The webinar is the first in a series of Deep Dives into selected waste management technologies, organized by UN-Habitat’s Waste Wise Citiesinitiative, African Clean Cities Platform and the Wuppertal Institute, under the Urban Pathways Project. The presented technologies are supposed to give local and regional government officials, as well as interested stakeholders, an overview of available technology options (which of course have to be assessed regarding their compatibility with the local situation before implementation).
Webinar I 14th October, 2 pm (CEST) 3 pm (EAT)
During the first webinar four factsheets on lithium-ion batteries identifying synergies between e-waste, electric mobility and energy will be presented. The factsheets cover the four segments of the end-of-life management of electric vehicle batteries: initial battery design, re-purposing in energy storage systems, refurbishing, and recycling.

The COVID-19 has radically reshaped life on earth, primarily in cities. Nothing is normal anymore and many temporary changes have been made. While a lot of people have been truly suffering because of the virus or the measures taken to control the virus, there has also been a silver lining - namely the fact that streets have become tamer - almost overnight - and the air a lot cleaner. Residents in Mumbai could see stars from within their city for the first time ever, while Kathmandu residents could catch glimpses of Mount Everest. Many lives will also be saved, as a result of cleaner air and fewer traffic crashes.
Urban Pathways has launched several demonstration actions to assist partner countries recovering from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and create innovative and sustainable opportunities that contribute to access and mobility locally and mitigate climate change globally. A short summary report provides an overview on the various pilot and demonstration actions, their scope, status and opportunities.
