Your Input is Needed – GCoM Needs Assessment ( new 16 July deadline)
GCoM is an international alliance of cities and local governments with a shared long-term vision of promoting and supporting voluntary action to combat climate change and move to a low emission, resilient society. We are requesting that local governments complete this survey (regardless of whether you have committed to the GCoM or not). The survey, link below, should take no more than 15 minutes to complete and be completed by the person who is or would be most engaged with GCoM or staff from a department dealing with sustainable development and planning or environmental issues.
All responses will remain confidential and will be compiled by an independent third-party into a report that will describe cross-cutting needs as well as more specific regional and/or localized needs.
Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for your valuable support of GCoM and for taking the time to help define the future of the initiative.If you have any questions please email email@example.com or call +61431265860
Welcome to the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy, an international alliance of cities with a shared long-term vision of promoting voluntary action to combat climate change and transition to low-emission and resilient societies. The Global Covenant now includes over 7,500 cities from 120 countries, representing over 700 million people, and is the largest global network of councils leading action on climate change.
The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy was launched in January 2017 following the merger of the world’s two primary initiatives assisting cities in their transition to a low-carbon economy: the Compact of Mayors and the EU-based Covenant of Mayors.
This international coalition of cities, towns and regions aims to demonstrate and share their ambitions to become low-carbon, encouraging renewable energy and energy efficiency, while being better adapted to climate change and importantly more climate resilient.
Following commitments made by National Governments as part of the Paris Agreement many local communities wish to play their part, and some are encouraging local councils to take a stand and make renewed efforts that reflect local and global contributions.
If your city is already involved in climate and energy action, your Council may stand to benefit from signing up to the Global Covenant which supports councils reporting their local climate action. Why not get involved and join over 7,500 cities around the world?
The information on this website will assist you to participate, commit and report through the Global Covenant of Mayors compliance steps.
