UPCOMING COURSES

Planning, Finance and Governance
Street Addressing is an invaluable tool for city management, although often misunderstood. It provides an opportunity to (a) create or update a map of the city that can be used by different municipal departments, (b) conduct a systematic survey that collects targeted information on the city, its services, businesses and population and (c) set up a database on the built environment that is, too often, unavailable. Information collected is associated with an address, thus making it locatable.

ETS, also called cap-and-trade schemes, are conceptually simple but practically complex. This course will guide you through the theory, practice, and available global experience important to the design, implementation, and governance of a well-functioning Emissions Trading System.
