Capacity Building Programme of Senior KMC Officials and senior Elected Representatives from KMC focusing on exposure visits and interactions on Climate-smart Innovations happening in other Indian cities.
This was planned in view of the fact that in certain Indian cities, city authorities and communities have demonstrated successful interventions for making the cities climate smart. These involve institutionalizing and implementing climate responsive and climate responsible actions, targeting both mitigation and adaptation. Under this deliverable nodal officers and elected representatives of KMC visited 4 selected cities and engaged in discussions, interactions, site visits concerning such efforts.
This enriched KMC’s institutional capacity to respond to the opportunities and impacts of climate change. The tour focused on providing information and knowledge on different aspects of environmental sustainability, including water management, waste management and energy security, in the context of climate change impacts in urban areas. It also showcased efforts undertaken by city governments to mitigate impacts of climate change and adapt to it for climate sustainability.
A detailed exposure Kit for the participants was prepared for this purpose.
