ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability

ICLEI ACCCRN Process Workbook

The ICLEI ACCCRN Process (IAP) enables local governments to assess their climate risks in the context of urbanisation, poverty and vulnerability and formulate corresponding resilience strategies. It draws on the experiences from the ten core ACCCRN cities (see www.acccrn.org) and existing ICLEI approaches and has been applied in a range of cities in Indonesia, Bangladesh, the Philippines and India.

Shimla, India

Shimla, India

Shimla is the capital of Himachal Pradesh and is perched in the southwestern ranges of the Himalayas of Northern India. It is built over several hills and connecting ridges, occupying an area of approximately 20 km2. Formerly the British ‘Summer Capital’ of India, it is now one of the most one of the most popular tourist destinations in the State, both for Indian and international travelers alike.

In 2008 Shimla was selected as a pilot city in the Asian Cities Climate Change and Resilience Network (ACCCRN), funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. Together, the ACCCRN ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability developed a six-phase process to enable the identification of
vulnerable urban systems, capacity constraints, and opportunities under a future climate scenario.

Carbon Climate Registry

The carbonn© Climate Registry (cCR) was launched at the World Mayors Summit on Climate in Mexico City on 21 November 2010 under the name carbonn Climate Registry (cCCR), as the global response of local governments to measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV) climate action. 

The cCR is a global mechanism developed for local governments by local governments. It enables them to publicly and regularly report their local climate action developments:
