Climate action needs local leaders: can they rise to the challenge?
Local leaders will need to mobilise their communities to tackle the very different challenges they will face and seize new opportunities in making the transition to net zero, as set out in the 2021 OECD Regional Outlook. In doing so, they can bring together solutions to generate important local well-being benefits.
