What has your contribution to city governments been through ICLEI?
I have been working with ICLEI South Asia for more than 6 years now, supporting local governments towards the implementation of sustainable development projects in the planning process and providing technical guidance especially on issues such as climate change and energy savings. I have also given my support in the development of greenhouse gas emission inventories. Along with my team at the Coimbatore office, I contribute to increase the knowledge on sustainability of local government officials through training, consulting and networking. We work intensively with the Coimbatore Municipal Corporation helping them in their journey to a more sustainable future and building the capacity of their city officials.
