Science-based target setting

Thursday, 7 October 2021

10:30 – 11:30 CEST (08:30 – 9:30 UTC)

The Cities Guide for Climate Science-based Targets for cities was developed by a core of ‘cities’ partners CDP, C40, Global Covenant of Mayors, ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF).

Backed by months of technical research and testing, the guide assesses and explains three science-based climate target methodologies and their technical criteria. It advises cities on which methodology to use and how to use the methodologies to determine interim and net zero targets.

This event will present the process leading towards this report launch and will present the technicalities of the different methodologies reviewed.
