Beginning in January 2020, ICLEI USA will host our 2020 Community GHG Inventory Cohort, a structured technical assistance program to guide local governments through the steps of creating a standard, also called “geographic” or “production-based”, community-wide greenhouse gas inventory in real time. The Training Session is available to ICLEI USA members at no additional cost.
The 18-week Session will run from January into the beginning of May 2020, when ICLEI USA experts will assist up to 20 communities to create a community-wide GHG inventory following either the U.S. Community Protocol (USCP) or Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy’s Common Reporting Framework.
By the end of the engagment, participants will have conducted a GHG inventory to better influence GHG reduction measures for their community and will be in a good position to move into forecasting emissions change and planning actions for a Climate Action Plan. Note that a Forecasting & Planning Cohort Session is planned to immediately follow, beginning July 2020. (It is not required for a participant to join both cohorts.)
