Building on the success of last year’s greenhouse gas inventory cohort, the Indiana University Environmental Resilience Institute (ERI) desires to partner on a Climate Action Plan (CAP) learn / do cohort session. Last year’s Indiana University Cohort led communities through the creation of Greenhouse Gas inventories. To take the process one step further, communities wanted to create Climate Action Plans.

Project Activity

ICLEI USA and Indiana University ERI conducted the CAP learn/do cohort sessions. ICLEI USA led in these sessions and provided additional one-on-one technical support. Each community had support from a student climate fellow which ICLEI USA taught to conduct climate forecasting and create a CAP draft.
