We have guidance to help cities set climate science-based targets. Nature science-based targets for cities are under development. Nature loss and climate change crises are fundamentally interlinked. We can solve the climate crisis – but only if we recognize the urgency of tackling the nature crisis alongside it.
Our cities guide for climate science-based targets for cities was developed by our core ‘cities’ partners CDP, C40, Global Covenant of Mayors, ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF).
Backed by months of technical research and testing, the guide assesses and explains three science-based climate target methodologies and their technical criteria. It advises cities on which methodology to use and how to use the methodologies to determine interim and net zero targetsDOWNLOAD CLIMATE GUIDE
