OECD COP28 Virtual Pavilion

System innovation for net zero: Bringing transformational change to cities and regions

Dec 1, 2023 | 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM


Cities and regions are accountable for a high share of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As such they play a crucial role in meeting global mitigation targets. In particular, policy decisions shaping transport and urban planning will largely determine the spatial development of a city or a region. This will in turn determine the share of GHG emissions, making transport and urban planning policy decisions inseparable from climate action, as well as from broader action to improve people’s well-being. This session will bring together government representatives and international institutions to discuss how system innovation can help cities and regions move towards net zero. On this occasion, the OECD will present recent work that that brings systems thinking and systems innovation to the heart of climate action. Governments representatives will share experiences and lessons regarding the value added to this decision-making approach. In addition, international institutions will discuss the importance of systemic change for achieving sustainable lifestyles and the use of systems innovation for accelerating the pathway to a resilient future.
