The Urban Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) project approached us with an idea for an infographic to empower African cities in limiting global warming. Africa is the continent most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and urgent action is needed to keep global warming below a temperature of 1.5°C.
We used cool tones in our design to accompany the overall message of the poster – that we need to prevent further warming. The simple grid structure of the infographic makes it easy to navigate; whilst the graphics in each block helps the reader to quickly see and understand the topic of each.
The Urban-LEDS project is funded by the European Commission and jointly implemented by ICLEI and UN-Habitat.
