The Solutions Gateway
The Solutions Gateway is an online platform providing guidance on Low Emission Development Solutions for local governments. By taking an integrated approach, proposed Solutions include information on the enabling and multiplying actions to optimize their effectiveness and generate synergies.
The Pool of Experts is a global multi-disciplinary network of professionals with expertise on Low Emission Development and Local Governments – from strategies to technical sectoral expertise, to financing guidance and capacity building. It is free and open to recognized experts from business, industry, NGOs, research & academia, and all levels of government. Click here to join the Pool of Experts [Free]
GreenClimateCities Program (GCC)
Drawing on more than 20 years of work on local climate action, ICLEI's GreenClimateCities program offers a process to local governments integrating low emission alternatives into their planning processes and policies. It has a clear methodology, with guidance and/or tools provided for each step.
ICLEI’s online GHG emissions inventory tool, Harmonized Emissions Analysis Tool plus (HEAT+) helps local governments account for GHG emissions, Common Air Pollutants (CAP) and other Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).
On one single platform, HEAT+ enables cities to:
- Prepare Inventory and forecast emissions
- Prepare Action Plans
- Track commitments
- Measure progress against targets
- Inform policy decisions
- Determine Priorities
- Quantify progress, and
- Report "Scope" differentiated results
carbonn Climate Registry (cCR)
The carbonn Climate Registry (cCR) is the world´s leading reporting platform to enhance transparency, accountability and credibility of climate action of local and subnational governments. It is designated as the central repository of the Compact of Mayors launched at the Climate Summit 2014.
The Greenhouse Gas Regional Inventory Process (GRIP) is a future's scenario tool. It is used to inform and train city officials and staff to identify current policy options that may impact the success of delivering future greenhouse gases emissions reductions, energy security and efficiency. Developed by Dr. Sebastian Carney, GRIP is used in partnership by ICLEI.
GPC - The Global Protocol on Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories
The GPC is the guiding Protocol for local governments for greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting at community level, ensuring that the results are Measurable, Reportable and Verifiable (MRV). The GPC also underpins the global Compact of Mayors, the world’s largest cooperative effort among cities to reduce GHG emissions, track progress and prepare for the impacts of climate change. The Compact – endorsed by preeminent global city networks – has adopted the GPC as part of its core activities to raise the level of ambition and quality of city GHG inventory reporting.
