Supporting Climate Action from Planning, Conceptualization to Implementation and Replication

The CapaCITIES Phase II project engages with national, state and city level governments, to enhance capacities of select Indian cities to plan and implement climate resilience actions by mainstreaming and integrating climate actions (adaptation and mitigation) into urban planning processes. The project is also supporting the city and state governments to access finance for scaling up the urban climate actions and will enhance knowledge on accelerating city climate action at the national and global level through its knowledge sharing, peer learning and capacity building activities.
