Multi-Level Governance in (Climate) Action – Co-creating policy solutions to tackle climate change

Description

Multi-Level Governance (MLG) is an essential ingredient for modern, comprehensive policy-making applicable at any level, from local up to EU policies (and, of course, even beyond Europe). It can strengthen a variety of processes, especially supporting and accelerating climate change mitigation and adaptation, as well as effectively tackling energy poverty, providing a coherent framework for the just transition and enhancing many other crucial issues. When addressing the scale and scope of solutions necessary to address the complex global challenge of climate change, effective MLG is a key asset to accelerate cost-effective and socially inclusive actions. The Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy in Europe represents an example of coordinated multi-level action and offers ideas, resources and opportunities to better enable, scale up and mainstream MLG in climate and energy policies across Europe.

This publication tries to tackle the following questions:

What does MLG mean in practice?

What role does it play in policy-making and in accelerating climate and energy action?

Why is MLG considered to be such a key element of the Covenant Europe?
