Green Cities

Green Cities are designed to build a better and more sustainable future for their residents by meaningful, tangible and sustainable actions.

In the middle of the current century, 70% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. Urbanisation and climate change call for new solutions to maintain and improve the quality of life in our cities. City councils and municipalities are becoming aware of the dangers of climate change.

The ‘Green Cities´ website is to encourages the green cities activities by providing innovative ideas, information based on practical examples, and technical expertise. This information address certain themes: climate, energy, buildings, waste, transport, water, biodiversity, the economy and social cohesion.

Today, many urban areas already suffer from the negative effects of climate change as well as other negative consequences. The negative consequences of climate change on living conditions will continue to be dramatic, due to higher temperature, more frequent and excessive rainfall with consequential flooding, more widespread and excessive drought etc.

The most successful cities plan a mix of action plans and investments. Standalone policies and investments often fail to fully benefit from the synergies of optimal coordination and sequencing of interrelated policies, investments and the involvement of residents. Strong institutional structures and reliable financial mechanisms are required for cities to pursue their green agendas effectively.

Local governments often struggle to undertake environmental actions due to several constraints, including limited political power, low levels of institutional capacity, low levels of stakeholder integration, limited fiscal power, poor financial management and lack of access to finance.

Cities need strong institutional environments that allow their local governments to function more efficiently, flexibly and competitively to achieve an ambitious green city agenda.

In the Czech Republic focus on green cities
