The GCOM Canada Cohort, financed by European Union, is a training and collaboration program designed to help support municipal staff in the implementation phase of their climate mitigation and/or adaptation efforts. Bridging the gap between planning and implementation is a formidable but necessary step in realizing our climate targets and securing a low-carbon, resilient future.

The GCOM Canada Cohort will help face this challenge by providing implementation support to municipal staff through one-to-one meetings, group trainings and peer-to-peer workshops and tailored deliverables. By working together, we can identify our implementation challenges and devise strategies to tackle them head-on.
