Transformative Climate Action Using Participatory Data Driven Decision Making Platforms (T-CAP)

15 Jul 2022 to 14 Jan 2025


While digital means are increasingly used to assist in managing cities, an untapped potential lies in using these means to facilitate participatory local level policy making and implementation to catalyse transformative climate actions. This holds special significance in the small and medium cities from the Global South that face resource and capacity constraints. In this ever dynamic world, data driven decision making platforms can assist in augmenting the capacity of local actors and communities to collaborate on forward looking, transformative climate actions. The project assists urban local bodies in working effectively with all stakeholders (particularly the civil society) to gather and analyse data needed for comprehensive policy making and jointly implement transformative climate actions. It aims to showcase a science based participatory planning framework for data driven decision making that can inspire cities across the globe.
