Reporting Platforms

Accompaniment and progress reports are an important pillar of the GCoM initiative. The local government must inform (report) its progress in the Pact in order to receive its “recognition medals” and have its profile updated on our regional and global websites. It is possible to choose to report as progress is made in the elaboration of inventories, definition of GEE reduction goals, analysis of climate risks and vulnerabilities, definition of climate adaptation objectives and planning of climate actions in mitigation and adaptation in any order. For example: a city that has already defined adaptation actions may initiate its reporting process for this topic.

Once a local government has adhered to the GCoM and concluded the stages related to the assessment, definition and planning of objectives/goals, the city must regularly monitor the progress in the implementation of two year-long plans to achieve the established objectives and goals. From the beginning, a solid support system and schedule must be put in place, and it must be an integral part of two climate action plans adopted by the city. This also involves a clear mechanism for reviewing and updating two plans as necessary.

The accompaniment of the implementation of the climate action plan is carried out by each individual local city and authority in accordance with the rules applied locally and the provisions as identified in the plans. Subsequent progress reports are sent through two officially recognized reporting platforms:

Mitigation

  • Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC) – Accounting and reporting standard for cities

Description: The methods for preparing the inventory of GEE emissions used by cities here vary considerably. This inconsistency makes comparisons between cities difficult, raises questions about the quality of data, and limits the ability to aggregate GEE emissions data from local, subnational, and national governments. To allow more reliable and meaningful reports, greater consistency in GEE accounting is necessary. The Global Protocol for Community-Scale Emission Gas Stove Inventories (GPC) addresses this challenge and offers a solid and clear structure, based on existing methodologies for calculating and reporting GHG emissions throughout the city.
