By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, a pivotal moment in the fight against climate change unfolded as the Department of Local Government, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme – UNDP and the Belize National Climate Change Office, spearheaded the first stakeholder consultation aimed at updating the municipal plan for Orange Walk.

This landmark initiative also includes the crafting of a low-carbon investment roadmap, a crucial step towards a sustainable future.

Generously funded by the UNDP, this initiative is being executed by the esteemed Global Factor consulting firm.

Dubbed the “Integration of Low Carbon Development into Municipal Planning in Orange Walk,” this endeavor is a cornerstone of UNDP’s #ClimatePromise Project, which extends its reach to over 100 countries worldwide.

Climate Promise stands as the largest global effort dedicated to bolstering national climate pledges and their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

The significance of this consultation cannot be overstated. It represents a tangible commitment to inclusivity, ensuring that climate actions are not merely top-down directives but initiatives embraced by all levels of government and society.

The approach, fosters a collaborative effort, which seeks to promote ownership of climate actions, advance principles of equality, and fortify both social cohesion and environmental sustainability.
