What is new in the Solutions Gateway?
Since the Solutions Gateway was opened to all cities and towns at the 2015 ICLEI World Congress in April 2015, its contents and functionalities have already been expanded. We will regularly update you on this development, starting from today!
- The online tutorial has a new module: How can the Solutions Gateway help your city develop low-emission projects?
- New interactive features enable you to: rate Solutions, report results, and share materials. (For Registered users only!)
- Thanks to other initiatives partnered by ICLEI, such as the Urban NEXUS and the Urban-LEDS project, as well as the Partners for Climate Protection program (ICLEI Canada), 14 case studies covering diverse themes were added. Find out if your city is among them: Nelson Mandela Bay, Toronto, Hamburg, Linköping, Lille Metropole, Ehlanzeni, Mexico City, Dhaka, Vancouver, Surrey, Nanaimo, Saint John and North Vancouver.

About the Solutions Gateway:
The Solutions Gateway was developed under the Urban-LEDS project, funded by the European Union, and jointly implemented by ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability and UN-Habitat. Initially it was only available for the 37 Urban-LEDS project cities (July 2014 - March 2015). It is now accessible for use by all interested local governments since April 2015.
