INFOGRAPHIC: How governments are leading on climate through the Compact of States and Regions
- 02 July 2015
LYON: Today the first-ever results from the Compact of States and Regions, the only global platform to record climate data from sub-national governments, have been announced - and visualized in an infographic.
The preliminary emissions reduction targets and inventory data from governments to the Compact of States and Regions was announced on July 2 at the World Summit Climate and Territories in Lyon, France.
A total of 20 state and regional governments, representing over 220 million people and US$8.3 trillion GDP, have now committed to a series of ambitious targets through the Compact, with more governments due to report over the summer.
See our infographic below to explore the data in full and learn more about how the Compact works, in particular ahead of the critical UN global climate talks in Paris later this year.
The Climate Group States & Regions program brings together sub-national government leaders from around the world in a powerful, high-profile network that shares expertise, demonstrates impact and influences the international climate dialogue.
We are taking part in two critical events, The World Summit Climate & Territories in Lyon, France on July 1-2 and the Climate Summit of the Americas in Ontario, Canada from July 7 – 9, 2015. Bothare for sub-national governments to get full recognition and show their commitment for climate action ahead of this year’s COP 21 Paris meetings.
