Research recently undertaken by adelphi shows that an international dialogue can promote local climate action. A study and a recently published policy brief not only outline suitable format and content for such an exchange, but also provide insight into existing support schemes and policy frameworks across multiple countries.
Local authorities play a decisive role in climate policy. Worldwide there are a number of countries actively targeting cities and municipalities for the promotion of climate mitigation measures. Even though successful governmental approaches promoting local climate mitigation have been around for several years, they did not receive as much spotlight as other policy developments. Within the framework of a project funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), adelphi therefore aims to initiate an international process of networking and learning for the promotion of climate mitigation at the local level.
The study was preceded by a variety of events, including a side event and dinner dialogue at the COP 18 in Doha, Qatar, in order to explore potential interest on the topic. These events were co-hosted by the BMU, the Covenant of Mayors of the EU Commission and the Climate Alliance. The Doha discussions were followed by a planning meeting in February of this year, which was attended by representatives and experts from national ministries and agencies, NGOs, and research institutes.
In the past months adelphi also analysed existing policies and promotional instruments in Austria, Japan, Sweden, Great Britain, Germany and the U.S. states of California and Connecticut which are all particularly progressive in this policy area. Summarised results of this analysis can be found in the study itself. In addition, concrete ideas for the implementation of the dialogue process, proposals for target groups, specific topics and appropriate formats are compiled and presented within the Policy Brief.
