The fact that climate change mitigation is also a municipal task has been clear since at least the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015. The impact-oriented, strategic management of municipal climate goals is therefore a challenge that must be overcome at the local level. Municipal administrations make decisions about strategies, measures and investments that have an impact on the climate. In order to better implement effective measures, (e.g. with the help of integrated climate change mitigation policies) robust, aggregated data is necessary.
With the help of digital solutions and sensor technology, for example, analyses of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the city can be created, evaluated, and used to derive policy measure. Data-based future scenarios, visualizations and dashboards also help to better understand complex interrelationships and translate them into impact-oriented management.
Strategic management of climate protection measures is one of the greatest current challenges for municipalities. How can it best be managed?
In order to create globally sustainable structures, the member states of the United Nations have set themselves 17 goals by 2030, which are set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
