Strategies for Cities to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emmissions

A new paper from the Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance (IMFG) reviews the strategies of three cities that are leading the charge to fight climate change. According to the paper the three common and effective strategies in these municipalities are:

  • Building and maintaining a broad-based coalition of governmental and non-governmental actors working toward a common goal;
  • Investing in capacity-building, data collection, and education; and
  • Embedding new ideas, financial tools, and standards into local formal and informal decision-making institutions.
