Technical support to C40 African member cities that have signed the Compact of Mayors to produce GPC-compliant emissions inventories
C40 is a global network of large cities seeking to address climate change through developing policies enabling the reduction of both greenhouse gas emissions and climate-related risks. To date, C40 is one of the leading global projects to be implementing the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in 40 large cities, hence the project name “C40”. While international conventions are discussing a way forward on tackling climate change, the progress of the C40 project on reducing carbon emissions worldwide has been impressive, with more than 4700 actions undertaken to address climate change.
