IUC Latin America and the Caribbean produce over 150 best practice cases


The Latin America and the Caribbean office of the International Urban Cooperation programme (IUC-LAC) has recently completed the documentation of around 165 sustainable urban development best practice cases in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru. Collectively, the case studies outline successes at local, regional and national levels across the region.

Urban management and development professionals are invited to learn from these practices and to apply the knowledge in their local contexts.

The 165 case studies are separated into 11 thematic areas:

  • Low-carbon urban planning
  • Clean energy systems
  • Sustainable transport
  • Green buildings
  • Urban regeneration
  • Water - wastewater - flood control
  • Waste management
  • Environmental management
  • Green industries & circular economy
  • Smart city development
  • Green finance

The documentation is part of the European Union’s contribution to a better understanding of innovative urban practices and aims to offer inspiration to city managers and urban professionals internationally.
