This year, ICLEI, together with the WWF will bring over 100 EHCC cities’ inspiring climate commitments, performance and actions to the COP21, and we invite you to join the celebration!
The COP21 in Paris, France, will be a milestone event in the international climate negotiations. In line with this year’s negotiations, the 2015- 2016 EHCC theme, “Bridging the Gap”, invited cities in 21 select countries to show their power and potential to support national governments to close the gap between the currently aggregated global climate commitments and the additional commitments and actions necessary to keep global warming below the 2° Celsius mark.
Reports are in and EHCC cities and towns from 21 countries including China, Peru, Vietnam, Rwanda and Tanzania; and veterans Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, Finland, France, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, South Africa, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, and the USA – have shown their remarkable leadership, through reporting their inspiring climate commitments, performance and actions through the EHCC’s official reporting platform, the carbonn® Climate Registry.
