LAB India programme launch: ten cities sign up
Ten cities, from India and the region, signed up for the Local Action for Biodiversity- India (LAB India) programme launched at the Cities for Life summit on 16 October. LAB India seeks to gear Indian cities towards the better conservation and management of biodiversity.
ICLEI South Asia, supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), developed a Local Action for Biodiversity – India (LAB India) programme and will work closely with cities in and the region to facilitate its implementation.
The LAB India Programme will be developed on the basis of the pioneer Local Action for Biodiversity (LAB) initiative, a global programme run by ICLEI’s Cities Biodiversity Centre.
