Climate Action Planning (CAPs) Programme

Project Overview
The Climate Action Planning (CAPs) Project aims to support African cities become compliant with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy Programme (GCoM). The GCoM is an international alliance of cities and local governments with a shared long term vision of promoting and supporting voluntary action to combat climate change and move to a low emission, resilient society.

Through a series of globally recognised badge allocations, the GCoM aims to support cities globally with climate change mitigation and adaptation. Badges for mitigation and adaptation actions are earned in parallel in three steps following the submission of

(1) a greenhouse gas (GHG) emission report,

(2) an emission reduction target setting report and (3) a climate mitigation action plan for the mitigation pathway; and following the submission of (1) a hazard report as well as a risk and vulnerability assessment, (2) a climate adaptation goal setting report, and

(3) a climate adaptation action plan for the adaptation pathway.

Through generous funding from UN-Habitat. ICLEI Africa is currently implementing the CAPs Project in Nacala, Mozambique and Moroni, Comoros to support these two cities with GCoM compliancy.

Nacala, Mozambique
Nacala, Mozambique, also known as Nacala-Porto signed up to the GCoM Programme (then Compact of Mayors Programme) in 2016. To date Nacala has completed their GHG Inventory as well as a Hazard Report.
