PR, Newsletter or Other

The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and Semarang City Government concluded an agreement to collaborate and support the implementation of City Resilience Strategy (CRS) on 24 May, 2016. IGES provides a total solution on actionable plans by conducting the following activities (Figure 1):
1) Developing low-carbon society scenarios and multi sector action plans up to 2030
2) Conducting an in-depth study on one particular sector, i.e. transportation sector through co-benefit study
3) Translating policy recommendations into practical actions
4) Implementation of Project on Low Carbon Technologies.
These activities help cities to implement two out of six pillars of City Resilient Strategies, on Sustainable Water and Energy (Pillar No 1) and Integrated Mobility (Pillar no 4). This also helps cities to address the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
goals 7 (Cities and Communities), 11 (Sustainable Cities), 13 (Climate Action) and 17 (Partnership for the Goals) at the city level.
