NetZeroCities recognises the need for cities to develop climate action strategies that are tailored to suit local and regional contexts, and will support them by collecting existing tools, resources and information on the design and implementation of climate actions, while also developing new content to fill the gaps, in a one-stop-shop Mission Platform accessible to all cities. In addition, the project will support up to 30 pilot cities to help drive rapid learning about how to achieve climate neutrality at the city scale. The cities will benefit from an intensive support relationship and dedicated services to achieve their net zero goals.
The project will provide knowledge and services related to systemic change, citizen engagement and democratic governance, capital and financial structuring, and social innovation to ensure that cities have access to the best expertise available anywhere in the world. The Mission Platform will further function as a meeting point for cities where they can exchange knowledge, collaborate together and learn from each other.
