State commitment to local climate action: an AFD publication in collaboration with I4CE
State and Local Government Climate Initiatives
This study conducted by AFD, in collaboration with I4CE, proposes an analysis of the commitment of the states of 51 developing and emerging countries in favor of the “climate” policies implemented by their local authorities in 2017.
From a database created for the purposes of the study, this work shows that many local initiatives exist; however, they are rarely accompanied by the financial means necessary for their application.
The study provides recommendations for better integration of the local scale in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).
