As Country Spotlight Reports highlight significant climate change related activities that take place in each country, it is our aim to shine a spotlight in order to mobilize local forces in advocacy work around those activities. This month, most countries are moving in the right direction. None are standing still, while a few are continuing to work against the Paris Agreement. Italy is the sole country to have a Moving Forward rating. Click here to download the full report.
