Policy Action

The Under2 Coalition’s Policy Action work helps to accelerate climate policy development.  

We support the most ambitious state and regional governments around the world to develop and implement climate policies that are consistent with keeping global average temperature increase well below 2°C.

Explore our Under2 Policy Action Map browsing by region or category to see how states, regions, and cities in the Under2 Coalition are taking bold action on climate change.

Learning from one another accelerates policy adoption and improves implementation by raising awareness of what has and hasn’t worked around the world. It also builds strong inter-governmental relationships, which can lead to collaborative partnerships.

We make this happen by facilitating government-to-government peer learning and by connecting policymakers to essential information and resources – you can find out more below. 

Policy action projects are focused on peer learning which takes place through thematic ‘peer forums’ and ‘innovation labs’. These provide a platform for sharing experience, evaluating policy and developing partnerships between states, regions and cities in different parts of the world.

The Industry Transition Platform works with governments from highly-industrialized regions to develop strategies to cut industry emissions while supporting growth, job creation and prosperity. 

The ZEV Community brings together all levels of governments to share and learn about exciting ZEV initiatives taking place around the world.

The Under2 Methane Project is a forum for state and regional governments around the world to share effective ways to reduce methane emissions, beginning with a focus on the oil and gas sector.

Past peer forums include the Under2 Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Project, Energy Efficiency Finance Peer Forum, Electric Vehicle Policy Initiative, Adaptation Peer Forum and Clean Tech Innovation Peer Forum.

The Under2 Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Project supported state and regional governments to increase the number of zero emission vehicles on their roads.

Energy Transition Platform ran from 2015 – 2018 and supported governments from highly-industrialized states and regions to innovate and learn from each other’s energy transition policies.

We conduct targeted research on global state and regional climate action, innovative climate policy models and global best practices.
