In July 2018, WWF France published a study entitled “The Urban Climate Challenge: Getting French cities on board with the Paris Agreement targets”.

The study, a collaborative project with EcoAct, highlights the responsibility of French cities in terms of climate change, their commitment to this front, and proposes local targets, inspired by the Paris Agreement, for France’s ten largest cities.

The study also offers forward-looking visions of carbon neutrality challenges and a “100% renewable energy” target, before outlining sector-specific solutions and suggesting ways to remove the technical and financial obstacles still putting the brakes on local ecological transition in territories.
