GCOM Canada Implementation Cohort

GCOM Canada Implementation Cohort

A collaboration cohort to support the implementation of bold climate mitigation and adaptation plans.

Bridging the gap between planning and implementation is a formidable but necessary step in realizing our climate targets and securing a low-carbon, resilient future. The Global Covenant of Mayors (GCOM) Canada Implementation Cohort is tackling this challenge by providing implementation support to municipal staff through one-to-one meetings, group trainings and peer-to-peer workshops and tailored deliverables. By working together, we are identifying implementation challenges and devising strategies to tackle them head-on.

About the Canada Implementation Cohort

Convened by ICLEI Canada and financed by the European Union, the GCOM Canada Implementation Cohort is a training and collaboration program designed to support municipal staff in the implementation phase of their climate mitigation and/or adaptation efforts. Virtual collaborations are taking place until September, 2024. Participants will convene on the occasion of GCOM’s Innovate4Cities Conference in Montreal.
