- We analyse Local Climate Plans (LCPs) for 885 Urban Audit cities from all 28 European member states.
- Approximately 66%, 26% and 17% of cities, respectively, have mitigation, adaptation or joint plans.
- Approximately 80% of cities with >500,000 inhabitants have mitigation and/or adaptation plans.
- There is great diversity across the EU-28, with more plans in central & northern Europe.
- Only a few countries in the European Union (EU) make LCPs compulsory.
