Strategy

ICLEI Europe is a network of local governments and city networks / associations that are committed to addressing local sustainability. It links to the global ICLEI network, and works with local governments - large and small - in projects, by offering services and conducting advocacy on their behalf. Climate protection and sustainable energy form core elements of the organisation's approach. As part of its commitment, ICLEI will: (i) Promote the Covenant of Mayors towards its members, as well as other city or partner organisations; (ii) Support the exchange of experiences between communities e.g. at the ICLEI Membership Convention (e.g. Brussels September 2011) and the Local Renewables conference series (e.g. Freiburg, October 2011); (iii) Provide services to local governments, Covenant Coordinators and Covenant Supporters, including a wide range of expertise and tools (e.g. how to conduct a BEI, how to develop a SEAP, how to monitor developments, etc..) - also refer to www.iclei-europe.org/ccp.

International Local Government Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis Protocol (IEAP)
Category: Other
Description: Building on 17 years of experience through the Citis for Climate Protection (CCP) Campaign, ICLEI has developed the first version of the International Local Government GHG Emissions Analysis Protocol (IEAP) that follows principles of the GHG Protocol.The IEAP consists of the general principles and philosophy that any local government, regardless of location, should adhere to when inventorying GHGs from its government operations and community as a whole.The emission sources that should be included in a GHG inventory and the methods used to quantify theses sources are generally consistent between local governments, but are unique when compared with any other type of entity.The International Protocol is informed by developments such as: IPCC 2006 methodological changes;GHG Protocol by WRI / WBCSD;ISO 14064 Greenhouse Gases series of standards;GRI Public Sector Agency Supplement.Comments are invited - feeding into the current review process currently underway ny ICLEI, the C40, World Bank, and WRI (refer to the press release: http://www.iclei.org/fileadmin/user_upload/documents/Global/News_Items/Image_Documents_web_news_11/ICLEI_and_C40_MoU.pdf)
