Measurement and Planning Initiative
Delivering on the objectives of Paris Agreement will require all C40 cities to take transformational actions to reduce vehicular emissions, improve building energy efficiency, increase the supply of green energy, and change consumption patterns, while strengthening the ability to deal with the impacts of climate change through adaptation.
Our aim is that every C40 city should have developed and begun implementing a climate action plan before the end of 2020, which will deliver action consistent with the objectives of the Paris Agreement. A climate action plan should address the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to the impacts of climate change and deliver wider social, environmental, and economic benefits.
C40's Climate Action Planning Programme is designed to help cities develop or update their climate action plans in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement. The technical assistance, delivered by C40 in partnership with expert city climate planners, covers a wide range of support including training, workshops, peer-to-peer collaboration, stakeholder engagement, planning tools, research and much more.

New Climate Action Planning Resource Centre
The C40 Climate Action Planning Resource Centre brings together a wide range of tools and resources to support city climate planners in the process of delivering action consistent with the objectives of the Paris Agreement – an integrated and inclusive climate action plan that addresses the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to the impacts of climate change, and deliver wider social, environmental and economic benefits. Stay tuned – new resources and tools will be added as they become available.
