ICCG Creates Climate Practices Observatory…

The International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG) recently launched  the Best Climate Practices observatory. The initiative aims to give an overview of  the ICCG’s work on climate change. Through an interactive world map, the observatory makes it possible to locate best practices and evaluate which geographical regions and sectors deserve more attention. Users can rate best practices according to their originality, implementation capability (by geographic regions and social contexts), realisation costs and potential benefits.

The Centre says giving users the opportunity to rate the practices contained in the platform allows the team managing the platform to gauge the level of approval for specific projects, while granting visibility to the authors of the main practices. Through votes, users will contribute to the formation of a top chart and the election of the ‘Users’ Choice Award’. Users are also encouraged to submit new practices for rating.

In addition to the user generated ratings, a panel of experts drawn from universities and international organisations will assign the ‘Experts’ Choice Award’.

The Best Climate Practices represents the starting point for a series of reports and studies (available here) and a useful tool for the creation of a network to discuss and share new viewpoints and proposals. Learn more by visiting www.bestclimatepractices.org.
