Since August 2019, the IUC Asia program of the European Union has been providing technical assistance and support to five pilot cities in Indonesia (Palembang, Denpasar, Depok, Malang and Makassar), four in Malaysia (Penampang, Tawau, Muar, and Hang Tuah Jaya), and three in Viet Nam (Can Tho, Da Nang and Tam Ky) for the development of their Climate Action Plans (CAP) that are according to the Global Covenant of Mayors’ Common Reporting Framework (GCoM CRF). The technical assistance is being implemented through cooperation with the following technical partners: Centre for Climate Risk and Opportunity Management in Southeast Asia Pacific (CCROM-SEAP) in Indonesia, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia-Low Carbon Asia Research Centre (UTM-LCARC) and CDP in Malaysia, as well as UN Habitat and CDP in Viet Nam.
Next month, the CAP development in these twelve pilot cities will arrive at the finish line. IUC Asia will hold three Final Workshops virtually, one in each country, to showcase the pilot cities’ CAPs that they have developed throughout IUC Asia program. The CAPs will show the cities’ commitments to address climate change by reducing greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions, adapting to the impacts of climate change, and delivering wider social, environmental, and economic benefits. There will be reflections and discussions about the challenges and lesson-learned throughout the process, especially for future EU cooperation, along with a review of its progress from IUC Asia’s last mid-term monitoring. In the future, the end result of CAP development with IUC Asia program will become references for replication in other GCoM cities.
