SKL International is making an inventory of environmental solutions that could be successfully implemented in developing countries. Solutions could provide innovative ways of addressing issues like mobility, water, sanitation, energy, housing, waste, air pollution, climate change and public space.
They might be innovative because they are low-cost, use appropriate technology or are easy to implement and maintain. They don’t have to be technical in nature – they might focus on behavior, attitude, incentives and disincentives to promote sustainability.
Selected examples will be featured in a publication on Innovative Environmental Solutions and used to inspire cities in finding new ways of addressing urban challenges.
If you know of an innovative environmental solution that works, send us an email, a link, a report or a YouTube clip at innovation@sklinternational.se
