Cities and regions are the level of government where European and national commitments to mitigating climate change and adapting to its effects are implemented. Climate initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors demonstrate that local governments can often exceed national targets, which testifies their critical role for achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement. In this context, governance and finance are key elements in the fight against climate change.
