After two years rolling out C40's Climate Action Planning Programme in Africa, cities are already preparing for #TheFutureWeWant. Watch how!
Climate Action Planning Resource Centre Supporting delivery of Deadline 2020
In 2016, nations ratified a global agreement on climate change, the Paris Agreement, committing to ambitious efforts to keep global average temperature rise to well below 2 ̊C above pre-industrial levels, and to pursue efforts to limit temperature rise to 1.5 ̊C. The Paris Agreement also commits to increasing the resilience of countries to the impacts of climate change.
C40's aim is that every city should have developed and begun implementing a climate action plan before the end of 2020, which will deliver action consistent with the objectives of the Paris Agreement – an integrated and inclusive plan that addresses the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to the impacts of climate change, and deliver wider social, environmental and economic benefits.
C40's Climate Action Planning Resource Centre brings together a wide range
of resources and tools to support city climate planners in the process of
delivering action consistent with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.
New resources and tools will be added as they become available.

Supporting cities reach peak greenhouse gas emissions
Global greenhouse gas emissions need to peak by 2020 at the latest and then come down very steeply. At present, global emissions are still rising. That is why it is so important that many of the world’s greatest cities are bucking the trend and showing that a low carbon world is possible
Advancing climate action in cities
Cities are leading the way, but in order to deliver action consistent with the ambitions of the Paris Agreement, cities need comprehensive climate action planning: from trainings, peer-to-peer collaboration, stakeholder engagement, to research and planning tools
