Cities Climate Law: A Legal Framework for Local Action in the U.S.

While local governments face considerable legal hurdles in enacting climate policy, they also have significant authority to develop novel policies that can slash greenhouse gas emissions while cutting local air pollution, expanding access to opportunity, and making our cities more equitable places to live.

Join ICLEI USA and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School about the new Sabin Center report, Cities Climate Law: A Legal Framework for Local Action in the U.S., that offers a comprehensive guide for local law- and policy-makers to develop climate programs that comport with federal and state law. Hear directly from the authors as well as community representatives on how your community can navigate various legal frameworks to meet your climate goals.
