The publication "Cities Footprint Project: Strategic Results and Methodological Guide" developed as part of the agenda on Climate Change and Cities of CAF - development bank of Latin America - arises from the need to support municipal governments and decision makers in the transition stage that their cities must cross to a low carbon development and resilient to the effects of climate change.
The main objective of the " Cities Footprint Project ", is to support local governments and decision makers in the development and implementation of municipal strategies for mitigation and adaptation to climate change, through the measurement and reduction of the carbon footprint and the water footprint of their cities (and territories) and its own institutions.
The results of this successful experience leave learned lessons that can serve to other cities to guide its development towards a low carbon and climate-resilient. Thus the document's main objective is to present the main strategic results derived from "Cities Footprint Project ", learned lessons and challenges ahead. Also, the learning process and improvement in the implementation of the tools developed under the project, has allowed the systematization of methodologies in detail, described in the document, in order to facilitate the measurement of footprints in other cities of the region, through a better understanding of the technical and methodological aspects that this project entails.
