CDP believes that state and regional governments play a vital role in driving climate action and delivering sustainable economies. CDP provides a global platform for sub-national governments to measure, manage and disclose their environmental impacts. In 2021, 96 states and regional governments disclosed their climate data through CDP and became part of a global movement driving the transition to a low carbon and resilient economy.
CDP is the global reporting platform for Climate Group, RegionsAdapt, the UN’s Race to Resilience and Race to Zero campaigns and EU Climate Pact. The data is used by the UNFCCC’s Global Climate Action Portal, which recognizes climate actions and commitments undertaken by actors from 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.
In 2021, 96 states and regional governments disclosed their climate data through CDP and became part of a global movement driving the transition to a low carbon and resilient economy. Together, they represent a combined population of over 499 million people. Explore the list below to learn more about the actions these states and regions are taking to rapidly cut emissions and build resilience against climate threats for populations now and in the future.
