2020 Registry of Publications
The 2020 Registry of Publications is now live. Please refer to the registry for an overview of publications to be released in the coming months related to tracking climate action in states, regions, cities, businesses, and investors. It includes anticipated release dates and report descriptions as they become available and will continue to be updated over the coming months.

We will use this registry to inform Camda members of upcoming releases and to identify organisations to coordinate report messaging with. If your organization has an upcoming report or publication related to tracking subnational climate action, please ensure the registry is up to date with the correct information relating to it. You can add a comment directly on the registry with the relevant details, including your full name, or contact
See below the timeline of releases for the four planned aggregation reports led by NewClimate Institute, Data-Driven EnviroLab, Utrecht University, University of Oxford, CDP, and DIE/GDI.
The Future of Global Climate Action in the UNFCCC Summary Report
Galvanizing the Groundswell of the Climate Actions is pleased to share a summary report on The Future of Global Climate Action in the UNFCCC The document summarizes the outcomes of an “Online Atelier” on the Future of Global Climate Action (GCA) in the UNFCCC held in May 2020. The objective of the workshop was to deepen our collective thinking on how GCA could be strengthened going forward. It feeds into the consultations carried out by the High-level Champions, who were tasked at COP25 with exploring opportunities to improve the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action (MPGCA). 
Key points:The shift to implementation places greater emphasis on action by both Parties and other actors. Action will increasingly be the yardstick by which the value and legitimacy of the UNFCCC process will be judged. GCA is the part of the UNFCCC process that catalyzes and brokers action via collaboration between all actors. GCA should not be thought of as just the realm for non-state or sub-national actors, but as a tool to help all actors enhance action. On the road to COP26 and over the next five years, GCA activities should prioritize catalyzing action, facilitating capacity building and information exchange between Parties and non-Parties, and enhancing reporting and communication, while strengthening the organizational aspects of GCA in sync with the implementation architecture of the Paris Agreement.
