ICLEI is part of the cities group in charge of mapping out all related methodologies to – 1.5° C pathway; this includes the revision of Kaya Methodology for Carbon Stock allocation as well as other city related methodologies related to GHG emissions reduction SBT. A final report has been compiled which includes other organizations as part of the group such as C40,WRI, CDP, GCoM & WWF.
ICLEI staff reviewed one of the assigned methodologies and provided comments in regards of the following principles:
– The methodology should be up to date relative to latest science
– The methodology should be equitable
– The methodology should address all GHG´s and GHG´s sources (Completeness)
– The methodology should be user friendly
The outcome will be a recommendation to unify all crosscutting criteria into a holistic global set of recommendations which would be applicable to all sizes and types of cities. This also includes a landscape of methods and tools from specific hubs (Land; Ocean; Water; Biodiversity) related to cities.
