SAP Technical Guidelines: Cities and Climate Change

This document can also be found on the official website of the Green Climate Fund: This resource focuses on Simplified Approval Process (SAP) technical guidelines. Frequently, national governments have criteria they use to define urban areas. These criteria can vary to include aspects such as administrative boundaries, living conditions or population density. Another approach is what is termed “urban agglomeration”, which considers the extent of an urban area, or sometimes, that of a built-up area, to identify a city’s boundaries. This resource is part of the collection "Integrating environmental considerations in urban planning and mitigating risks on communities". Collections are monitored daily and new content is added.
