Municipal policy makers need to navigate, analyse and prioritise a broad range of resources available on buildings efficiency online in order to tailor solutions to their specific local circumstances. However, the proliferation of on-line resources does not necessarily lead to better decision-making or access to trusted sources upon which decisions can be made. Many resources are offered without clear provenance or transparency on the source, quality or utility of resources.
To address these issues, the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN) and a coalition of global cities networks and building sector policy think tanks have come together to create this City Knowledge Centre with the support of the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
The vision is for all cities to have access to high-quality, cutting edge, curated evidence, best practices, insights and policy exemplars to support the decarbonisation of the buildings sector in line with the Paris Agreement.
