Project Activity

ICLEI provided 9 – 1.5 hour long web-based presentations which allowed for peer-exchange and learning. Training was held every two weeks supporting participants in conducting a community-wide GHG inventory. At the conclusion of the program, we hoped that participants will have conducted a GHGI and forecast of future emissions along with potential targets to reduce emissions and provide a basis for a Climate Action Plan.

Outcomes

As of 12/2/21, based on a survey sent out with 5 responses, 1 inventory has been completed with 4 near complete/ in the finalizing stages. 100% of respondents would agree or strongly agree that they would recommend the cohort and 100% of the respondents believe they have the tools and knowledge they did not have at the beginning. 40% of respondents are near complete in their forecast and 60% has not started. 80% of respondents believe the program met their community needs.
