Makindye Ssabagabo among the 4 cities invited for the Climate Smart Cities Challenge

We are in a jovial mood after Makindye Ssabagabo Municipal Council emerged among the four cities from across the world that have been invited for the Climate Smart Cities Challenge by UN-Habitat.
Makindye Ssabagabo is the only city in Africa to have made it this far. The other three cities include; Bogotá (Colombia), Bristol (UK) and Curitiba (Brazil).
According to UN-Habitat (United Nations Human Settlements Programme), these "will develop and test cutting-edge solutions for zero-carbon neighbourhoods, freight logistics management and green and affordable residential buildings, together with partners UN-Habitat".
The City of Makindye Ssabagabo said: “Although the green homes concept is being adopted fast in urban cities in Asia, Europe and North America, the innovation is relatively new in Ugandan urban settings and this therefore calls for diverse international expertise with the participation of local stakeholders to pinpoint what will work best in order to reduce GHG emissions.”
