TERI, in collaboration with the European Union International Urban Cooperation programme, is delivering a capacity building programme on 'Mainstreaming Urban Climate Action'. The programme includes four short webinar modules focusing on building the capacity and knowledge of practitioners in urban local bodies (ULBs), state representatives, policy experts, researchers, scholars, and university students.

This Webinar Module II on 'Frameworks for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in Cities' is the second of the series and focuses on the strategies and frameworks for Mitigation and Adaptation that can be incorporated in urban climate action plans to address climate change impacts. In addition to delving into these strategies, the global and national context of the evolution of climate change policies and contexts that contributed to the development of such frameworks will be discussed.

The Webinar is accompanied by a resource module and an informative video which will be available to the participants.
