We are delighted that our Regional Roadmaps for Africa, Asia, and Latin America, developed by the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) are soon to be released. Developed as stakeholder-driven documents, the Regional Roadmaps build on inputs from over 700 regional stakeholders and global experts outlining aspirational targets, timelines, and key actions for essential policies and technologies. During the workshop, participants will discuss how the Regional Roadmaps can be instruments for framing debate at all jurisdictional levels (e.g. regional, national, local) to implement strong, forward-looking policies integrating emerging and innovative technologies.
We would like to thank all the GlobalABC members and partners who have engaged in the regional roadmaps development process by answering the survey, participating at in-person and online meetings, and providing inputs to the documents. The Global Roadmap update and the three Regional Roadmaps are being finalized and the soft launch will take place at the 2020 GlobalABC Assembly, through a dedicated workshop "Forging regional pathways towards a zero-emission, efficient and resilient buildings and construction sector: The GlobalABC Regional Roadmaps".
