Day 3: Translating Plans to Implementation – Tools for Climate Action Planning and GHG Modeling (Panel Discussion)

"Day 3 gives an overview of climate action planning in cities and discusses some of the challenges and solutions in translating city-level plans into implementation."

Cities are integral to tackling the global climate crisis. This 4-day master class aims to build the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to help operational teams and their client cities to both better understand the impacts of climate change and transition to low-carbon development pathways. As teams anticipate the alignment of all new operations with the global targets of the Paris Agreement by FY2023, this master class seeks to support Bank teams to further mainstream climate-related considerations in Bank operations and analytics and into the DNA of practitioners engaged in urban development and service provision. 

The panel gives an overview of climate action planning in cities and discusses some of the challenges and solutions in translating city-level plans into implementation. The session also presents some of the GHG modeling tools available to support climate mitigation with a focus on the uses and applications of APEX and Urban Performance.
