Looking at cities’ budget can steer change by tracking expenditures that contribute or are harmful to the ecological transition. For local authorities, it is particularly at the time of the vote of their budget that it is possible to question these expenditures and to direct them as much as possible towards the climate transition.
To meet these demands, the Institute for Climate Economics (I4CE) co-constructed with five French local authorities (cities of Paris and Lille, metropolises of Strasbourg, Lyon and Lille), the national environmental agency (Ademe), the Association of French Mayors (AMF), EIT Climate KIC and the association of large cities (France urbaine), a climate assessment framework of local authorities budget . This methodology freely available will be presented in the webinar with the testimony of local authorities pilots that have implemented the methodology.
Organised by the Covenant of Mayors - Europe in cooperation with the Institute for Climate Economics and with the support of the The French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME).
This event is a Partner Event of the EU Green Week 2021.
