At COP21, the Compact of States and Regions was hailed as one of the most impactful collective initiatives as it allowed, for the first time, to accurately reflect the level of ambition shown by states, provinces and regions around the world. In less than one year, the Compact of States and Regions has become the global go-to platform for states, provinces and regions to measure and manage their GHG emissions, already collecting climate data from 44 governments representing one eighth of the global economy.
As a critical part of the post-Paris agenda of action by Non-State Actors, The Climate Group invites all states, provinces and regions around the world to report to the Compact of States and Regions between April 4 and July 2016. Governments are welcome to signal their intent to start reporting in 2015. The first Compact of States and Regions disclosure report was
released at the 21st Conference of Parties to the UNFCCCC (COP21) in Paris, December 2015. See our infographic below for more.
