The project included the assessment of the Carbon Footprint and Water Footprint of cities in a geographical level and at the level of the municipal governments in each city, as institutions. Based on the results obtained from the measurement of footprints, SASA has developed Action Plans for beneficiary cities of the project, which constitute a potential investment portfolio to guide the development model of the target cities to one low carbon and resilient to climate change, which may be financed with funds from local governments, credit development banks (CAF, IDB, WB, IFC), climate funds (Green Fund, Adaptation Fund), among others.
In 2015, SASA supported in the implementation of the project measuring the carbon footprint of the production chain of corn in Argentina, through MAIZAR, which is the association of corn producers and Argentine sorghum, in partnership with SUSTENTABLE and the technical support of support Carbonfeel.
As part of the implemented projects, SASA has developed important software and footprint measurement tools, along with their respective user manuals, guides, methodological descriptions and tutorials including a toolbox -ToolBox- training aimed to create capacities for measuring and monitoring the footprints. It also has been created mechanisms to disseminate results and citizen participation, personal footprints calculators available as mobile apps, calculators for schools footprints, homes, businesses, among others.
SASA also produces pre-feasibility studies and final design studies of sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources projects, and provides technical advice on issues of forests and climate finance.
SASA has signed important partnerships and has worked directly with more than 50 partner institutions in promoting low-carbon development and resilience to climate change in the region, such as with Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), C40, development bank of america America (CAF), Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), Latin American Future Foundation (FFLA), French Development Agency (AFD), Avina Foundation, etc. Close
