Beyond ‘business as usual’: Assessing the scope of climate action plans to lower current emissions trajectories

Project Details

Description

Cities worldwide are formulating Climate Action Plans (CAPs) with pledges to reduce emissions and achieve net-zero status. Though such plans have the potential to produce large effects, to date, these initiatives have noticeably failed to yield substantial progress. This project will develop a novel method to systematically evaluate CAPs and provide reliable information on the scope of CAP strategies to local governments. Ultimately, this methodology will bolster city-wide climate policy development, implementation, and governance.
