In April 2021, the United States released an updated Nationally Determined Contribution
that emphasized the role forests and urban trees play in meeting that goal by 2030. Local governments have unique policy tools available to implement tree-based climate strategies. Most Community-wide inventories include the basic emissions for daily life, such as energy usage, transportation and waste, excluding Forestry. The LEARN tool is a newly developed ICLEI USA tool that aids communities with
accounting for Forestry emissions and sequestration, that can be added to the ClearPath tool to complete an inventory.
