Abstract: The CoM collection provides supporting data for the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (CoM) initiative. The CoM is the mainstream European voluntary movement involving local authorities in the development and implementation of sustainable energy and climate policies. In Europe, the CoM complements national climate change strategies and plans and signatories pledge to reduce their CO2 emissions by at least 40%, increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change and take action to alleviate energy poverty. The JRC provides scientific and technical support to the initiative, based on its expertise in fields such as sustainable energy, climate change mitigation and adaptation and access to energy. The JRC work includes: Setting the methodological basis of the initiative, including guidebooks for local authorities. Evaluating and approving the SECAPs of cities with a feedback procedure for EU, EU Eastern Partnership countries and European Neighbourhood South Region. Developing assessment reports on the CoM initiative. Co-chairing a technical working group on data and developing the new "standard" for city emission reporting, targets, action plans and adaptation for GCoM. Working on the methodological adaptation to the different regions of the world: South Mediterranean, Eastern partnerships, Sub-Saharan Africa, North America, Latin America, Japan, India, China and South-East Asia. Providing technical training for cities and regions and for regional experts and capacity building activities in FPI regions.
