GlobalABC Regional Roadmaps: a « living document » 

Following the launch of the GlobalABC Regional Roadmaps for Buildings and Construction in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the work in roadmap development continues at full speed. While these roadmaps continue to be disseminated as powerful tools for promoting decarbonization of the built environment, the methodology and process are now being taken to sub-regional, national and sub-national levels leaping forward towards implementation.  

The GlobalABC continues the work in collaboration with the Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings, the International Energy Agency, the Danish Energy Agency, the World Resources Institute, the World Green Building Council, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the UK Green Building CouncilC40 Cities and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development. This is a core group where synergies between the different initiatives are identified and explored, ensuring that the lifespan of the roadmaps extends well beyond the projects, through local engagement and implementation.  

Through expertise sharing and the pooling of data, these organisations are working together to develop key actions to lay the foundations for the 2050 vision and to bridge roadmaps to higher level political processes like the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the MPGCA Pathways to ensure engagement and commitment across the entire value-chain and constituencies. This is yet another instance of the radical collaboration pushing towards a zero-emission, efficient and resilient buildings and construction sector.
