Toolkit on Localization of Urban Practices

Toolkit on Localization of Urban Practices:

A Screening Tool for Government Officials Planning to Replicate Urban Best Practices and Policies in Their Cities

  • About this Toolkit

The Toolkit on Localization of Urban Practices produced by CityNet is the result of an initiative that developed over several years. Throughout the many workshops and capacity building activities that CityNet has carried out through the years, the need was raised to develop a toolkit to assist city government officials in assessing the relevance of best practices, policies, and case studies that CityNet regularly introduced to them for their own cities.

Taken to its simplest expression, this toolkit aims to assess if best practices and projects from one city can be localized and successfully implemented in another city of interest. It offers city government officials a step-by-step guide and framework to analyse any best practices and case studies they encounter.

Following this analysis, they can then make a more enlightened and sound decision as to whether they should attempt to localize and implement this best practice in their own city.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
