Energy transition in Cites: Latin America
Today, around 55% of the world’s population – 4.2 billion inhabitants – live in cities. With more than 80% of the global GDP being generated in cities, these dominate energy demand, and by extension, are responsible for a significant share of carbon emissions. The density of human, economic, and intellectual capital in the world’s cities can be a driving force to accelerate the energy transition by translating national policies into local policies and, ultimately, action. As cities face similar challenges they also could share solutions. Thus, the importance of sharing good practices and experiences. This event seeks to understand more in detail what is happening in Latin America, what kind of actions are being implemented, the role of youth and how we can move forward.
