Local solutions – are they the Key to Realising Nationally Determined Contributions

15 Nov 2022
Climate Challenge Lab
Week 2

While cities occupy only 3% of the earth’s surface, they are responsible for 75% of global energy consumption and an equal percentage of CO2 emissions. Cities can help shape challenges and solutions portfolios, and bring all societal actors around the table. As hubs of creativity and innovation, they provide the seeds for a charge by hosting large-scale demonstrators and cross-sector initiatives.  

This challenge considers: 

  • How to use the energy agenda and community as catalysts for other sustainability challenges 

  • Which enablers help to bring speed and scale to urban solutions so they can help tackle (inter)national challenges? 

  • How can urban solutions help to drive a just transition? 

  • How to leverage multi-level and multi-actor governance at the negotiations?
