Chengdu, China

About Chengdu

Chengdu is a strong advocate of its Park City initiative that mainstreams nature into the city’s urban planning processes. Under the Sino-German Urbanization Partnership, ICLEI works with Chengdu and Dortmund in German to foster exchange on how nature-based solutions play a role in urban regeneration. Chengdu also released its decarbonization strategy in 2020, which highlights low-carbon lifestyles and consumption at a citizen level as an important means to achieve the goal. The city focuses on incentives and a transparent approach, and is working with ICLEI on food circularity in a local ecotourism area.
