This self-paced e-learning course provides an overview of the tools, resources and compliance requirements of the Compact of Mayors, a global coalition of mayors and city leaders committed to sustainable local climate action. The Compact establishes a common platform to capture the impact of cities’ collective actions through standardized measurement of emissions and climate risk, and consistent, public reporting of their efforts. To develop greenhouse gas inventories, cities use the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories (GPC).
The seven-module course includes interactive exercises, infographics, maps, graphs and resources for learning about the Compact of Mayors. Lessons provide foundational knowledge for getting started with GHG inventories, setting mitigation targets and developing climate action plans. The course also provides ample opportunities for users to apply material through practice exercises with real-time feedback that motivates and reinforces learning.
