To meet our climate goals, we need to increase ambition, explore new and innovative GHG reduction opportunities, and transition to a resilient, low-carbon future. The Municipal Net-Zero Action Research Partnership (N-ZAP) aims to study and create improved methods for how local governments monitor, measure and reduce local GHG emissions. These evaluation methods will make it easier for municipalities to identify, develop and assess decarbonization initiatives, with the goal of aligning local climate work with national commitments.

N-ZAP is currently recruiting 250 Canadian municipalities to participate as pilot cities or case study subjects. Program participants will have the opportunity to contribute to the national climate conversation, gain access to new climate resources, and more.

Visit the N-ZAP website to learn more, including how to apply to participate in the program.

N-ZAP is a partnership between the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the University of Waterloo, ICLEI Canada, 11 Canadian universities, seven national organizations and ten municipal governments.

This project was undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada.
