Impacts of ICIs

A new section called "Monitoring and Reporting" has been be inserted on the page for each initiative. The lines in this section contain the following information: Short and long-time objectives, Roadmap and work plan, How are you tracking progress of your initiative, Progress that has been made by your initiative, Tracking adaptation progress (quantitative), Tracking mitigation progress (quantitative), Tracking finance progress(quantitative), Available reporting, success stories, and How to join your initiative.

Based of the information in the ICIs covering cities and regions we regularly update our new Pipeline: 'Cities and Regions Pledges Pipeline' available at It is an enlargement of the NDC&Pledgepipeline, including information on GHG reduction commitments from 1984 cities and 284 regions. The analysis in this Pipeline shows that 60% of the GHG reduction commitments (about 1 GtCO2 eq.) in cities and regions worldwide is additional to the 2020 pledges from countries.

Later we will publish tables, graphs and information about the impacts of International Cooperative Initiatives (ICIs).

Below we have listed a number of reports and articles about ICIs:
