Huge opportunities exist to mitigate climate change at the city and subnational level but a range of barriers prevent these opportunities from being fully realised. Rather than simply implementing stand-alone local actions or down-scaling national strategies, a range of effective solutions now exist to accelerate mitigation via integrated national and subnational action.

In this paper prepared for the LEDS-GP, Ecofys highlights some of the key opportunities, barriers and solutions, and encourages national governments to consider how, through implementing more integrated approaches, they could better engage and support their cities and subnational government counterparts to unlock and accelerate action on climate.
