EOI: Municipal participation in project to strengthen climate science, improve awareness, and mobilize climate change action

NEIA is seeking municipal partners to support greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data collection through engagement with municipal staff and residents.

Data collected through collaboration with project partners will be used to develop a Low Emissions Analysis Platform (LEAP)-Integrated Benefits Calculator (IBC) for NL. This type of modelling, developed by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and used around the world, can jointly assess GHG emissions, air pollution, and impacts on human health. Outputs of this model can be used to craft emissions mitigation scenarios to inform action and policy.

The proposed three-year project aims to strengthen climate science, improve awareness, and mobilize climate change actions across the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. These activities are aimed at broadly increasing knowledge of climate change mitigation opportunities and benefits, and encouraging the transformational change that is required to achieve the net-zero emissions targets adopted by the province and country.

Project partners will asked to contribute by:

  • Data gathering for community and corporate greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) inventories
  • Activities related to public education and engagement related to climate action
  • Promotion and credibility assurances for data gathering activities on municipal websites, social media, printed newsletters or other Town-established communication channels
  • Providing access to Town facilities for in-person workshops or events (in accordance with current public health guidelines)
  • Staff and councillor participation in knowledge-sharing workshops/events with the project team, other project partners, and external stakeholders, as opportunities arise and when available.

Via their participation, partners will be provided with strategic GHG emissions mitigation (i.e. carbon reduction) recommendations.

If interested, please contact Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director, at kieran@neia.org by September 22, 2021. The implementation of this project depends on funding approval, the likelihood of which which may be bolstered by your participation.
