How are Climate Action goals defined?
When an organization makes a Climate Action commitment, that organization must identify any executable actions in its mission and vision statements. These actions should be expressed in terms of goals.
What are the characteristics of a Climate Action goal?
- A Climate Action goal is short. One sentence is sufficient.
- Goals should be realistic, while ambitious, and should be a reflection of current plans for the future.
- Goals should be measurable. The type of activity to be undertaken, number of people/families involved, or amount of water/land treated.
- The goal should be defined over a specific time period. When do you expect to reach this goal? 2018, 2020, 2030?
Why monitor established goals?
Monitoring helps understand and verify progress toward the established goal, the overall commitment, and addressing the problem and/or context driving the initiative. It also helps participants identify difficulties and take action to address them. Monitoring provides information for planning; avoids overlapping of actors and actions; and helps identify opportunities for complementarity and synergies.
