Guidance

MAYORS IN ACTION: structural support, from the foundation and reaching to the clouds!

In order to make sure that relevant stakeholders are able to fully immerse themselves into the cyclical processes necessary for climate and energy transitions, MAYORS IN ACTION has developed a comprehensive framework to incorporate both C&S and LGs. This multi-level structure can be likened to a tall building found in any city across Europe. To see the presentation click here

Guidelines for monitoring and reporting

The primary practical benefits to be gained from robust M&R schemes revolve around the cyclical nature of adaptive programme-management. Once an
implementation phase comes to an end, its results feed directly into (re-)evaluation efforts, which in turn help to signify the needs and character of any follow-up actions and/or corrections. At a more practical level, this means that calculations ought to be made about measures’ impact according to concrete indicators. Such information can better define the actual status of implemented actions, as outlined in a specific report which communicates the main results to be disseminated among politicians, citizens and other stakeholders.

    Greenhouse Gas Emissions

  • International Local Government Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis Protocol (IEAP) - General principles for all local governments, regardless of location, when inventorying GHGs from its government operations and community as a whole - it outlines the type of GHGs, boundaries and scopes to be addressed.
  • SEAP Guidebook – the Part II is dedicated to the development of CO2(eq) emissions inventory. It defines a set of basic principles on GHG accounting and reporting processes. It also  provides municipalities with some reliable emission factors for the different approaches (territorial vs ‘Life Cycle Assessment’).
  • Sustainable NOW Energy and Emissions Monitoring Report – sharing the city partners’ approaches regarding data collection and monitoring energy projects and emissions reduction developments
