Title: Local Government Climate Roadmap
In a unique action, leading local government associations worldwide, representing communities around the globe, embarked on the Local Government Climate Roadmap - to work for a strong and comprehensive post-2012 climate regime, and to draw attention to the crucial role of local governments (LGs) in global climate protection. Two projects contributed to this – the LG Action project addressed Europe, and the other concentrated on emerging economies and developing countries, offering access expertise and instruments to tackle climate change. Activities with LGs were implemented in 37 countries, culminating in successful international advocacy and recognition of the important role of LGs.
