“While the details of the partnership will be finalised in the coming months, from 2019, the ICLEI network of cities, towns and regions will report alongside C40 member cities on CDP’s online reporting platform.
Cities will only have to report once, on one platform.
ICLEI will continue to support and provide technical assistance to local governments, while CDP and ICLEI will both use the self-reported city data to provide robust analysis of the action being taken by cities across the world.
The data and analysis will continue to support ICLEI’s advocacy messaging in its capacity as the focal point of the Local Governments and Municipal Authorities Constituency (LGMA) at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
This means that ICLEI will use the data to shape and substantiate its messages to nations and UN agencies to ensure that subnational commitments, plans and activities are embedded in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).”
