C40 Action Selection and Prioritisation (ASAP) Tool and resources
The aim of the C40 Action Selection and Prioritisation (ASAP) resources is to support cities in selecting and prioritising actions to include in their ambitious climate action plans. The Action Selection phase of the climate action planning process aims to support cities with the identification and prioritisation of key actions for reducing emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement. The action selection process builds on previous emissions scenario planning and adaptation goal setting. The Action Prioritisation process supports cities in identifying the actions (policies, programmes, projects and other activities) needed to deliver the strategies previously identified. The process involves assessing how these actions perform in terms of primary benefits (e.g. greenhouse gas emission mitigation, increased resilience, etc.) and secondary co-benefits (e.g. health, public services, local environment, etc.). It also involves assessing key implementation barriers (e.g. technological, financial, etc.).
