Coinciding with Climate Week, the World Bank has launched a planning tool to help cities worldwide to identify and prioritise their work to reduce carbon emissions. CURB (Climate Action for Urban Sustainability) has been designed to be a free, data-driven scenario planning tool and provides tailored analyses that can help city officials more easily identify, prioritize, and plan cost-effective and efficient ways to reduce carbon emissions.
Using CURB, city officials can explore an array of climate-smart options—from more efficient transport systems to retrofitted buildings.
