This workshop will delve into the findings of a comprehensive research project investigating city climate plans in Southeast Asia. The project reviewed existing climate adaptation and mitigation plans, including Kuala Lumpur’s NDC, to identify strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities. It examined policy gaps and drivers to explore barriers and drivers impacting effective policy implementation, providing valuable insights for improvement. In parallel, it analyzed urban climate change through satellite imagery, pinpointing specific areas vulnerable to rising temperatures. Households were surveyed to assess the effectiveness of nature-based solutions in addressing urban climate issues. Key informant interviews were conducted to understand the views of government officials and policymakers towards eco-based solutions. Climate action plans tailored to Southeast Asian cities were developed based on the research.

The workshop will provide valuable insights from comprehensive research on city climate plans in Southeast Asia. Participants will learn about best practices and emerging trends in urban climate action, build their capacity to implement effective climate adaptation and mitigation strategies, and forge networks with key stakeholders and policymakers working on climate change solutions.

Workshop Schedule:

Morning: Capacity building training for government officials on implementing urban climate action plans.

Afternoon: Discussion session with policymakers to exchange knowledge and explore collaborative solutions.
