LC3 is an ambitious plan grounded in 27 years of experience.
Canada cannot reach its climate targets without reducing emissions from its cities. Yet many promising urban low-carbon solutions fail to progress from proven concept to full-scale implementation.
The Atmospheric Fund (TAF) has been demonstrating low-carbon ideas and preparing them for scale-up in Toronto since 1991. Now is the time to adapt TAF’s model for use in other Canadian cities, according to a recent cross-country consultation with leading urban climate solutions stakeholders.
Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3) – a proposed Pan-Canadian network of major urban climate centres – will help six city regions to reach their full emissions reduction potential while at the same time unlocking co-benefits for local communities.
