CDP believes that state and regional governments play a vital role in driving climate action and delivering sustainable economies. We provide a global platform for sub-national governments to measure, manage and disclose their environmental impact. In 2022, 108 states and regional governments, representing 543 million people, disclosed their climate data through CDP and are part of a global movement driving the transition to a low carbon, resilient economy.
CDP is the global reporting platform for the:
This offers states and regions capacity-building opportunities and access to a network of relevant support. The reporting informs the Race to Resilience and Race to Zero Campaigns, on the progress of regions in their commitments towards net-zero, building resilience, and adapting to impacts of climate change. The data is used by the UNFCCC’s Global Climate Action Portal, which recognizes climate actions and commitments made by actors around the globe.

Ending deforestation cannot be achieved through individual action from companies or governments. Landscape and Jurisdictional approaches (LA/JA) provide a management framework that can integrate the actions of multiple stakeholders within a landscape towards a collective goal. Through these approaches, companies can meet their no-deforestation commitment while aligning their goal with the local government's vision for a sustainable future.
CDP has introduced new questions in 2022 on this topic for both corporate and sub-national governments. These will help to raise awareness, guide and assess corporate and sub-national government engagement with LA/JA.
