Climate-mainstreaming municipal budgets

This guidebook contains a collection of case studies, best practices and tools that can help local authorities align their spending and investments with the Paris Agreement objective of limiting global warming well below 2°C, by fully integrating energy and climate issues into their budgetary and financial planning.
There is a multitude of strategies and tools, which cities of various sizes are pioneering, touching upon all of the city’s financial assets and allowing local administrations to account for climate impacts at every step of their financial and budgetary planning.

These strategies are developed around five main axes:

  1. Environmental reporting and budgeting
  2. Green public procurement
  3. Fossil fuel divestment of municipal funds
  4. Green municipal bonds
  5. Earmaking local revenues and other financial instruments.


The strategies of the following cities are developed in this guide : Oslo (Norway), Manchester (UK), Paris (France), Växjö (Sweden), Järfälla (Sweden), Ferrara (Italy), Nenzing et Mäder (Austria), Breklum, Klixbüll et Bordelum (Germany), Zurich (Switzerland), Münster (Germany), Copenhague (Denmark), Leipzig (Germany), Seattle (USA), Bruxelles Capitale (Belgium), Londres (UK), Barcelone (Spain), Rome (Italy), Stockholm (Sweden), Helsinki (Finland), régions de Flandres (Belgium), OesteCIM (Portugal), Gothenburg (Sweden), Örebro (Sweden), Amsterdam (the Netherlands), Varna (Bulgaria), Milan (Italy), Lausanne (Switzerland), Krizevci (Croatia), province de Zeeland (the Netherlands), Valence (Spain).

The Democratic Transition Factory
  • What new modes of governance are emerging and to what extent do they facilitate citizens’ involvement in energy transition policies?
  • How are municipalities adapting their practices to deal with current societal transformations and what is the impact on energy transition policies?


You will find the answers to these questions in the detailed case studies of Cadiz fighting against fuel poverty, Grenoble as a laboratory for citizen participation and Maastricht, a co-production and full-scale experimentation.
