Smart Specialisation, an innovation bridge between the EU and Latin America
Publicación
Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible:
Temas:
Crecimiento económico inclusivo y sostenible
Ciudades inteligentes e innovación y competitividad regional/urbana
Uso sostenible de la tierra y soluciones basadas en la naturaleza
Since 2016, the International Urban Cooperation Programme has been a vehicle for cooperation between the European Union and Latin America on the topic of innovation for local and regional development. In this endeavour, the Smart Specialisation approach originally deployed in the EU, and its potential to foster localised, innovation-driven sustainable territorial development, have been a great source of inspiration. Building on the 20 regional pairings between regions from the EU and Latin America (Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Peru), this Science for Policy Report analyses the outcomes and the lessons generated by transcontinental cooperation and examines the potential to enshrine the EU touch on Smart Specialisation in the innovation landscape of Latin America.

INNOVATIVE FINANCING MECHANISMS
Publicación

Temas:
Adaptación climática
Transición energética
Crecimiento económico inclusivo y sostenible
Desarrollo urbano seguro e inclusivo
Ciudades inteligentes e innovación y competitividad regional/urbana
This third publication of the International Urban Cooperation (IUC) financial series aims to give an overview on innovative financing mechanisms. While traditional forms of municipal finance retain their importance, the role of new financial instruments and the engagement of the private sector become vital. Still, as experience show even when creditworthiness is not an issue, most of local and regional governments are either not aware or are afraid of using unconventional tools of financing. The aim of this booklet is to collect the most frequently used innovative financing schemes also applied in emerging economies, illustrated with case studies.

This report gives an account of how the IUC programme contributes to the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda. It outlines the challenges facing cities and how their cooperation has contributed to solving them. The report then takes a closer look at how international agendas affect cities and how progress reporting is set out, particularly given the challenge of accurately capturing the local contribution and achieving a sample that represents diverse cities. Next, the IUC programme and its components are briefly presented, followed by an analysis of how cities and regions engaged in the programme have contributed to the Sustainable Development Agenda. The report concludes with lessons learnt and considerations for a future programme of a comparable nature.

Overview of International Financial Sources and Institutions
Publicación
The Paris Agreement and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) mean that for the first time there is one Agenda for a Sustainable Future that brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious global climate efforts. Despite this favourable environment, a serious gap between funds available and funds deployed in local projects still exists.

Planning a sustainable city through smart & inclusive mobility
Webinario
Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible:
Temas:
Movilidad urbana
One of the greatest challenges we face today lies in mobility. Sustainable urban mobility requires a mind shift: where transport in private cars and trucking give way to different modes of public transport, like bicycle lanes and pedestrianised areas, electric vehicles, car sharing and rail freight. More and more cities around the world are rising to the challenge. Creating solutions that ensure the vital flow of people, goods and services, while mitigating climate change and creating healthier cities with better air quality and more inclusive development.

International financial sources and institutions relevant to city action
Webinario
Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible:
Temas:
Crecimiento económico inclusivo y sostenible
The scale of the action necessary to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to tackle climate change requires local action. Adequate financing is vital to ensure the feasibility of local sustainability projects, yet at present there is a significant gap between the level of funds available for sustainable urban development and the level of funds deployed. This webinar, the first of three on the topic of financing, shared an overview of the information needed to successfully access financing for sustainable urban development activities. Through presentations by experts, the webinar helped to cut through the complexity of international finance to provide participants with practical information on the requirements to access funding, as well as the best financing schemes available.

Integrating nature-based flood management into urban planning
Webinario
Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible:
Temas:
Adaptación climática
Agua, gestión de residuos y saneamiento
Water is and has been crucial in designing urban spaces and informing urban planning. Approaches towards flood management have changed over time, with the previous focus being on keeping water out of the city, and the more recent approach turning towards natural water management and integrated strategies for dealing with flood risks and promoting urban resilience. Crucial to this process of adapting to floods is the knowledge transfer and cross-cultural exchange of best practices in integrated water management amongst cities. It is with this purpose of encouraging inter-city learning that the IUC programme presents the practical experience of three cities in dealing with different kinds of flood risk through nature-based solutions and other innovative measures.
