Nature and science speak with their deeds: weather conditions are becoming ever more extreme with all the consequences that entails: heat waves, melting ice, hazards to human health,… Ensuring a climate-resilient and safe future is a complex task at hand, hence, establishing measures and reporting on impact at regional level, continues to be crucial to achieve that goal.
RegionsAdapt in partnership with CDP calls on all regional governments to report information for the 2021 disclosure process, contributing to accelerating climate action, advocating for a multi-level governance approach, and giving regions their voice in this process on the road to COP26.
The CDP States and Regions 2021 questionnaire and guidance has been launched. Through both documents, participants can see the type of information that is requested this year and the objectives that are being pursued.
To prepare for the release of the reporting platform, which will run by the end of March until the end of July 2021, interested actors can access both the questionnaire as the reporting guidance:
Over 130 states and regional governments already participate in the project. To follow in their footsteps please click here.
Disseminating information on their experiences, regional governments manage to become part of an international movement towards accelerating climate action, betting on the transition towards a resilient economy.
Leading up to COP26, the process offers a platform for participating regions to demonstrate their commitment at the international level. The benefits of reporting are multiple, and the following aspects stand out above all:
Reporting your region’s efforts will not only help us to track your progress on climate action, but will also allow you to learn the successful experiences from others and therefore, improve your actions and get global support and access to unique tools that will guide you on your journey to a sustainable and resilient territory.
