On the basis our 2020 thematic priorities, the Externer Link: IOPD requested a study on climate change adaptation and citizen participation, which was charged to Yves Cabannes, Urban Planner and activist specializing in urban and municipal governance, Emeritus Professor of Development Planning (UCL / DPU).
The study is co-published in September 2020 by OIDP-UCLG together with Externer Link: Enda ECOPOP, Externer Link: FMDV Global Fund for Cities Development, Externer Link: Kota Kita Foundation and University College London under the title Contributions of Participatory Budgeting to Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation: Current Local Practices Around the World & Lessons from the Field.
The study builds on the abstracts, exchanges and contributions from two international sessions on contributions of participatory budgeting (PB) to climate change adaptation and mitigation: IOPD Conference in Mexico, December 2019 and World Urban Forum in Abu Dhabi, February 2020. It also draws on climate sensitive PB initiatives in 15 participating cities and regions from different continents that willingly documented their ongoing experience.
