Under2 Coalition project launched

September 10, 2018, by Molly White

This week, the new Under2 Coalition project was launched to help make Paris Agreement goals more achievable for regional governments.

This new project – which is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) in partnership with The Climate Group, Ricardo Energy and Environment, ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability, the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute and CDP – aims to support regions to deliver on their Under2 commitment of limiting greenhouse gas emissions to 2 tonnes per capita or  80-95% below 1990 by 2050, by advancing their measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) capacity.

Along with encouraging knowledge-sharing across all levels of government, the project will help regional governments in Mexico (Baja California, Jalisco and Yucatán), India (Chhattisgarh and Telangana), Brazil (Pernambuco) and South Africa (KwaZulu-Natal) improve their climate transparency, which is critical to reaching the Paris Agreement goals.

This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
