The City of Milwaukee had set emissions targets as part of their Climate and Equity Task Force. Following an ICLEI GHG Inventory, the city requested a Wedge Analysis to determine the feasibility of meeting those targets. The local governments provided input of proposed strategies and feedback. They additionally coordinated with their community committees. There was both political and community interest to conduct this process.
Measured, quantitative outcomes / project impact
ICLEI researched strategies, conducted the technical analysis, and developed a forecast and written memo of potential mitigation strategies. ICLEI's technical experts developed and projected future emissions reductions from potential policy and program implementation. With input form City Staff and The Community Task Force, ICLEI technical expertise applied selected strategies given Milwaukee's specific conditions and applied the calculated emissions reductions against Milwaukee's existing emissions reduction goals.
