Commit to equitable, inclusive approaches to resilient, low-carbon infrastructure and development.

Even with vastly scaled up funding, countries will need the tools and the know-how to design efficient buildings and sustainable communities in order to make low- or no-carbon development goals a reality. Workforce training will be critical for achieving widespread adoption of best-practices, fostering innovation, and creating the next generation of green jobs. Additionally, technology sharing must include strategies to increase capacity for basic groundwork, such as enforceable codes, as well as more advanced approaches like holistic urban planning that integrates transportation, buildings, and other infrastructure to decouple rapid urban population growth with emissions and other environmental impacts.
