• P4CA Climate Action STUDIO: From 14 to 17 October, the first P4CA Climate Action Studio took place in Zanzibar, a small island at threat of the heavy impacts of climate change. The intention is to apply the P4CA Studio approach in other contexts requiring urgent climate action. By articulating capacity-building and practice in particular locations, the P4CA Studios have the potential to help guiding planners address new pressing climate change issues. They can also demonstrate the power of urban planning practice in supporting effective climate action by national governments and local authorities. Read more here and find our recap video here. We welcome your ideas on potential other Studios in your countries.
