The CLIMATE ALLIANCE... is a European city network of 1.400 member cities and municipalities, with its members committing voluntarily to ambitious targets:- minus 10% CO2 emissions every 5 years, - halving at the latest until 2030 organises exchange of experience, promotes achievements, develops supporting tools (methodology, concrete measures, campaigns to involve citizens,...), represents towards national and EU level
CLIMATE COMPASS... is a method to support the development of local climate action plans builds on local experience and framework conditions proposes a structured process offers support by trained Climate Compass promoters
CLIMATE COMPASS is for... local and regional authorities, where the decision to become active in climate change policies has been taken, but where no/low capacities and know-how are available for developing a comprehensive strategy.
CLIMATE COMPASS aims at... saving money and time demonstrating the benefits of climate change policies contributing to awareness raising of all people involved an integration into other, ongoing planning processes (Local Agenda 21,...)
Therefore...... is a roadmap for local climate change policies !

4: Climate Action Plan Defining targets Selecting priority measures Formulating strategic resolutions (on criteria, standards, etc.) Agreeing the mid- and long-term climate strategy The Climate Compass process
5: Monitoring Developing indicators Collecting data for CO 2 monitoring Preparatory work for future reporting The Climate Compass process
RESULT a process, which has contributed to awareness of all involved a taylored action programme comprising all relevant sectors first implemented measures first successes motivation to continue !!! The Results of the CC Process
“Compendium of Measures” matrix of potential measures in 8 fields of action “Best practice” around 200 examples from cities and municipalities Recommended Measures detailed description of “no regret” measures Resources (web tools, checklists, facts and arguments,...) Supporting Tools
