Global Covenant  Needs, Tools and Resources Assessment

Your Input is Needed – GCoM Needs Assessment (13 July deadline)

GCoM is undertaking a needs assessment to better understand the opportunities and challenges local governments face to combat climate change and to better serve the  assistance required by local government.

We are requesting that local governments complete the 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.

Ideally, the survey should 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. For the finance questions, we recommend you confer with your finance department  in answering these questions.

Survey Link: UPDATE

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.
