Through advisory services UESC is helping cities deal with environmental, sustainability and climate change issues in innovative ways with approaches that can extend to multiple thematic areas:

  1. Learning and capacity building programmes that incorporate different learning approaches and techniques
  2. Development of tools and methodologies to support decision making, planning and assess capacities
  3. Advisory with a research component
