European Commission's "road from Paris" goes through (Covenant of Mayors) cities
In a post-COP21 context, the European Commission addresses the challenges to be faced on the "road from Paris" in a Communication published on 2 March.

Defining the Paris Agreement as a " historically significant landmark in the global fight against climate change", the Commission reminds the key features of the deal and explains how the European Union will implement it, notably mentioning the "Energy Union Transition", innovation and competitiveness, climate diplomacy and global action and the role of cities, civil society and social partners.

In regard to the latter, the Commission emphasizes the importance of "catalysing multi-stakeholder action from civil society" and the crucial role of cities. "Work at city level and urban policies will therefore be intensified in 2016, including on supporting actions developed by the integrated and global Covenant of Mayors and the setting up of a ’one stop shop’ for local authorities." The Commission’s wish is to allow local authorities to "better contribute to the EU’s low carbon transition".

No doubt, the European Commission’s "road from Paris" goes through (Covenant of Mayors) cities!
