Climate action from cities, states, and regions (“sub-national” actors) and businesses,
investors and civil society organizations (“non-state” actors) has grown rapidly. A number of platforms and organizations have helped to galvanize and track this groundswell of climate action. This memo draws on Non-State Actor Zone for Climate Action (NAZCA), maintained and operated by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and a network of initiatives including CDP, the carbonn Climate Registry (cCR), The Climate Group, Investors on Climate Change, UN Global Compact, Global Covenant of Mayors, UNEP-DTU Climate Initiatives Platform and Climate Bonds Initiative. Here we provide an overview of the trends and patterns in sub-national and non-state climate action as recorded on NAZCA as of November 8, 2016.
