With great excitement, we would like to present to you the City Climate Planner Certificate Program (CCP), a training and professional certificate program that aims to increase the global talent base of climate planning professionals. As a part of this effort, The CCP program will be taking over the previous Cities and Climate Change space to serve as the primary platform for climate planning professionals. Over the course of the coming year, we will be using this space to share general information about our program, provide updates, and collaborate with you all on how best to prepare our cities to tackle the challenges climate change presents. More information about the City Climate Planner Certificate Program can be found here. (Link to Intro doc) Please take some to review the materials, and please post a question if interested. We look forward to your contribution!

Hello and welcome to the City Climate Planner Certificate Program (CCP), a training and professional certificate program that aims to increase the global talent base of climate planning professionals.
What is the CCP?
CITIES ACCOUNT FOR TWO THIRDS OF THE WORLD’S OVERALL ENERGY CONSUMPTION and about 70% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With urban populations booming, the choices local governments make today about managing their emissions and preparing for climate change will have major impacts on the health and economic well-being of their city. Because of this, climate planning is more important than ever. However, cities often do not have the skills, resources or capacity needed to implement quality climate action plans; which are based on a strong foundation of GHG emission inventories and climate vulnerability assessments.
To help build capacity in local-level climate planning, the World Bank and global partners are developing the City Climate Planner Certificate Program (CCP), a training and professional certificate program that aims to increase the global talent base of climate planning professionals. This program will offer training on the latest internationally accepted standards and protocols for city climate planning, a rigorous certificate exam that allows candidates to demonstrate mastery of climate planning knowledge, and access to professional networks that support this work.
