Cities can be vibrant and exciting places to live. However, unplanned urban growth, alongside rising energy costs, may restrict urban quality of life and economic development. Cities that pioneer a low emissions development model today are likely to attract future investment, reduce energy costs and become efficient, inclusive, clean places to live and work tomorrow. Local governments have a key role to play in supporting this transition to a low emission economy.
