In June 2013, LSE Cities launches the final edition of the report of our City Survey on Green Policy, Going Green: How cities are leading the next economy.
The City Survey on Green Policy involved a global survey of one hundred cities and in-depth research on efforts to build the green economy in eight selected cities. Preliminary results were published for the United Nations Rio+20 Summit and the Global Green Growth Forum in Copenhagen during 2012.
The final ‘Going Green’ document provides an up-to-date overview of cities’ experiences in the transition to the green economy. It provides a global comparative perspective on the environmental challenges that cities face along with the opportunities, progress and barriers to going green and fostering economic growth.
The report provides an up-to-date overview on the experiences of how cities around the world are making the transition to the green economy.
