June 10, 2014 – The Subnational Integration of LEDS Working Group has released a new publication highlighting key opportunities, barriers and solutions, and encouraging national governments to consider how, through implementing more integrated approaches, they could better engage and support their cities and subnational government counterparts to unlock and accelerate mitigation actions, and strengthen both national and international commitments.
Huge opportunities exist to mitigate climate change at the city and subnational level but a range of barriers prevent these opportunities from being fully realised. Rather than simply implementing stand-alone local actions or down-scaling national strategies, a range of effective solutions now exist to accelerate mitigation via integrated national and subnational action.
The publication was prepared by the LEDS GP Working Group on Sub-National Integration of LEDS. For further information, please contact: Nicholas Harrison, Ecofys (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Scott Muller (email@example.com)
