Climate Smart Cities Assessment Framework (CSCAF) 2.0 is a first-of-its-kind city assessment framework on climate relevant parameters for Indian cities. It was launched in February 2019 by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA). As a part of P4 support objective, Climate Centre for Cities (C-Cube) will support MoHUA in the implementation of CSCAF

The CSCAF 2.0 serves as a tool for cities to assess their current climate situation and provides a roadmap for cities to adopt and implement. The CSCAF 2.0 have been framed with 28 diverse indicators across five categories. The indicators are progressive in nature to encourage cities to adopt appropriate actions enabling them to improve their score in the future and consequently build climate resilience. To enable this progress, MoHUA aims to conduct the assessment on an annual basis.

As the C-Cube works to build climate action in Indian cities, the Centre will support the implementation of CSCAF, scaling it up from an assessment of 100 Smart Cities to 500 cities in the next five years. The team lead at the C-Cube will be part of the CSCAF Strategic Unit and the whole team will be part of the Core Group to ensure efficient implementation of the framework on an annual basis. This will entail coordination to facilitate the execution of the framework in a timely manner. The C-Cube will also coordinate with partner organizations working in Indian cities to create synergy across climate actions and strengthen capacities of cities to implement and mainstream climate action to progress in the framework. Finally, the C-Cube will also support in the documentation of best practices and case studies to showcase progress.
