Co-funded by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the University of Manchester, this project will identify examples where cities are making significant emissions reductions, to gather insights that support decarbonisation in Greater Manchester. These insights will cover a range of issues including: project development, participation, governance, finance, strategy etc, engaging critically with the concept of learning for transformation to low-carbon society/economy. Supervisory input will be provided by the official UoM supervisors and the GMCA lead.
The project will inform city region-level, national, and international stakeholders on the efficacy of different approaches to local project development and finance, climate action planning, and stakeholder partnerships.
Working closely with GMCA, this project will support the development of new climate action projects and contribute to their evaluation. There will also be opportunities to build collaborations with other cities in the UK and internationally to gain insight and test/disseminate findings.
Candidate will ideally start asap in 2022. For more information please visit Accelerating city level climate action: developing and trialling city level decarbonisation projects and interventions at The University of Manchester on FindAPhD.com
