Cities in the Baltic Sea Region are dealing with similar challenges when it comes to urban planning and development. How to apply more integrated approach to the development of urban environment? How to involve all necessary parties in the planning process and how to promote sustainable urban development?
CDP, the global climate change disclosure non-profit organisation, and the leading city network in the Baltic Sea Region, the Union of the Baltic Cities (UBC), agreed on a two-year MoU to increase the number of Baltic Sea Region cities using systematic reporting of their climate change related actions. After the first year of cooperation UBC more than doubled the number of member cities using the platform and the goal for 2018 is to get up to 50 UBC cities involved.
