Local Sustainable Solutions – East Africa

Find here local solutions for better energy use, water, tree planting, and others.

We welcome proposals for new local solutions in the Catalogue!

By end of September, 2021, there are 58 cases in the Catalogue. We are planning to launch new updated versions of the Catalogue during the UNFCCC COP26 (November 1-12, 2021), and at international/UN events in January, April and June, 2022. Therefore, if you can send new solutions, they can be visible in these new updates. Please send the proposals to the country and regional contacts by email, which you can see here. We will include the new cases as they arrive, after an editorial meeting.

To be included, the case should arrive a month before of the actual launch i.e. 1 December, 1 March, 1 May.
