Accelerating transition: How cities and regions make a difference

 low carbon  cities

Close cooperation among all levels of government and civil society is essential to achieve carbon neutrality. The success of transition depends on the ability to scale-up low-carbon solutions, and this will only be accomplished through involving sub-national authorities.

What are the most effective and cost-efficient solutions for emissions reductions in cities? Is scaling up existing climate solutions enough? What kind of governance framework is needed to support transition? How can cities’ climate mitigation efforts be accounted for systematically in, for example, national reporting?

Next week, countries from across the world will meet in Madrid (Spain) for the 25th Conference of the Parties of the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25). Past meetings have led to landmark agreements, such as the Paris Agreement, which was the result of COP21.

On 7 December 2019, the C-Track 50 project will be presented at a side event co-organised by project partner ICLEI Europe, the City of Cascais (PT), the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra and the EU Committee of the Regions (from 12:30h to 14h).

The event will draw on key insights from this and other Horizon 2020 projects, the Nordic Green to Scale for Cities and Communities report and the Talanoa Dialogues, and will feature representatives reporting first-hand on strategic and policy actions to scale-up solutions and strengthen multi-level collaboration.
