The American Planning Association (APA) is leading an Urban Planning Initiative under the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas. The 30-month project will promote urban planning as a tool to foster sustainable, climate-proof development across the Americas, under President Barak Obama’s Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas. The work, funded by the US State Department, includes a component of capacity building in the Caribbean in collaboration with the Canadian Institute of Planners and their Guyana-Canada Partnership for Community Planning. In addition, APA is providing expertise, technical assistance, and training in Latin America and is capturing best practices to inform domestic practice.
