Integrating the green and brown agendas in a climate change context

Source(s):  United Nations Human Settlements Programme - Headquarters (UN-HABITAT)

Guide for the formulation of environmental local agendas in Colombia:

This publication addresses climate change's threat to ecosystems, infrastructure, livelihoods and health in developing countries, where low responsibility matches with high vulnerability; and the ways we have to reduce its damages, decreasing the intensity of effects (mitigation) and minimizing the vulnerability to them (adaptation). It asserts that to be successful both in mitigation and adaptation, we must move simultaneously on the economic, social, environmental and political-institutional dimensions of human sustainable development, articulating the traditional development (brown) agenda and the environmental (green) agenda.
