One Planet City Challenge
The challenge is a WWF initiative to mobilise climate and sustainability actions in cities, while voicing support for existing actions, in the global transition towards a climate-friendly, one-planet future. It aims to develop and disseminate climate mitigation and adaptation best practices.
Entrants will be evaluated on criteria including:
- Level of ambition and ability to deliver on commitments and transformational change
- Ability to integrate actions into coherent and overarching climate action plans
- Determination to align with a transparent, science-based GHG emission reduction trajectory
- Innovative approaches to addressing urban mobility
ICLEI is WWF SA’s partnering assisting cities in registering and completing the reporting templates on the carbonn Climate Registry. The contact person in this regard is Belinda Mills. For more information please download the brochure.
