Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) is a program created by the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), an association of over than 700 local governments, representing over 300 million people worldwide.
Cities for Climate Protection is ICLEI’s flagship campaign. The program is designed to educate and empower local governments around the globe to take action on climate change. CCP is a performance-oriented campaign that offers a framework for local governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve livability within their municipalities.
ICLEI uses the performance-oriented framework and methodology of the CCP Campaign’s 5 Milestones to assist local governments in developing and implementing local approaches for reducing global warming and air pollution emissions, with the additional benefit of improving community livability.
