LGA Guide For Leaders - Climate Change

The LGA has worked closely with the Centre for Public Scrutiny to publish a guide to help councils play a leading role in tackling the climate crisis at a local level. 

The resource, which sets out 10 scrutiny questions, will help all councils and policymakers to embed the necessary environmental, social and cultural changes that communities need to see to build resilience to respond to climate challenges.

The 10 scrutiny questions in the report are designed to invite further questions from council officers and members which will help to identify and understand local needs, including how councils will be adapting their climate change action plans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
