Eco2 Cities: Ecological Cities as Economic Cities
Share

Eco2 Cities: Ecological Cities as Economic Cities is a programme launched by the World Bank in 2010 to help cities in developing countries achieve greater ecological and economic sustainability. The Cities Alliance is supporting the Eco2 Cities initiative, piloting the program in three countries in East Asia as well as a set of knowledge activities. 

The programme will provide practical and scalable, analytical and operational support to cities. It also aims to build a global partnership among forward-looking cities in developing countries, global best-practice cities, academia, and international development communities. 

As part of the programme, a number of publications and guides are being produced. They include:

  -  Eco2 Cities: Ecological Cities as Economic Cities

  -  Eco2 Brochure

  -  Study of Japanese Experiences on Sustainable Urban Development including Pollution Control and Management, Resource/Energy Efficiency and GHG Reduction (February 2011)

  -  Summary of the Eco2 Cities Programme in French
