GHG Forecasting, Target-Setting, and Planning for Climate Action 2020 Training Cohort

Beginning in July 2020, ICLEI will host our 2020 Target-Setting, Forecasting, & Planning Cohort Training, a structured technical assistance program to guide local governments through the steps of the Forecasting and Planning ClearPath modules in real time. The training session is available to ICLEI USA members at no additional cost.

The 6-week Session will assist up to 20 communities to utilize the Forecasting and Planning modules in the ClearPath tool.  The value of this training offering is estimated at $10,000.

By the end of the program, participants will have completed the Forecasting and Planning ClearPath modules preparing them for the development of a Climate Action Plan. Participants will learn how these processes interconnect with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy’s Common Reporting Framework.
