Understanding Data and Tools to Accelerate City Climate Action
A Decision-making and Tools Project White Paper
Data and tools play a key role in supporting and accelerating climate action at the local level, where city leaders face complex interdisciplinary decisions, multiple priorities, and engagement with a diverse range of stakeholders. Making climate action support tools easier to use, data more accessible, and accounting for regional differences and local needs provides much-needed support to cities with different capacities, and for those at different stages of their climate action journey.
The ‘Decision-making and Tools Project’ was conducted by the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM) in partnership with Bloomberg Associates (BA) and World Resources Institute (WRI) to better understand the city climate action journey and barriers to climate action and implementation, as well as to connect cities to tailored tools that address their needs, regardless of their experience, shape or size.
