Cities are made up of vast, complex, and evolving systems – and they are crucial to achieving climate action. Creating climate action plans for cities that are inclusive and ambitious can be a daunting task.

Join WRI for a discussion on the Inclusive Climate Action Planning framework, an engagement and planning process that results in more equitable outcomes for all. The framework, developed by WRI and the C40, assess the needs of different communities across a city, analyzes the benefits and barriers to action for certain climate policies, and measures and tracks progress for climate actions implemented.

Additionally, the event will introduce a range of tools developed for inclusive climate action planning for cities. This includes a climate action database with detailed equity considerations and policy design recommendations, a comprehensive indicators database to help cities monitor and measure the impact of their climate actions; and guidance manuals on how to anchor inclusive climate action in a city’s local context and political economy.

These tools and resources will be presented by a panel of experts who will also share experiences of how they have been applied in cities around the world.
