The carbonn® Center currently serves many important initiatives to strengthen local and subnational climate action. Each initiative addresses a specific target group and theme. ICLEI works with many partners to accelerate climate action and is a data partner of the UNFCCC’s Non State Actor Zone for Climate Action (NAZCA) Platform.
The Climate & Clean Air Coalition is the only global effort that unites governments, civil society and private sector, committed to improving air quality and protecting the climate in next few decades by reducing short-lived climate pollutants across sectors.
Complementary to mitigating CO2 emissions, the Coalition acts as a catalyst to create, implement and share immediate solutions addressing near-term climate change to improve people’s lives rapidly, and to ensure sustainable development for future generationsccacoalition.org
The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy formally brings together the Covenant of Mayors and the Compact of Mayors to form the largest global coalition of over 7,400 cities from six continents and over 120 countries advancing city-level transitions to low emission and climate resilient economies through voluntary action.www.compactofmayors.org www.globalcovenantofmayors.org
The Compact of States and Regions will aggregate data to showcase overall GHG reduction contributions made by sub-national (regional and provincial) governments around the world as well as assess their progress toward those commitments through GHG inventory data.http://bit.ly/2aHAfDq
