CURB tool : climate action for urban sustainability (Vol. 3) : Data template (English)

CURB, Climate Action for Urban Sustainability, is an interactive scenario planning tool that helps cities take action on climate change. By reducing their environmental impact, cities can achieve a variety of local benefits including improved health and air quality, job creation and economic growth, energy independence, while often saving money. CURB helps cities assess the implications of policy and technology interventions by allowing them to evaluate their cost, feasibility, and impact. CURB responds to local realities through a flexible and modular design, allowing users to focus on the information (e.g. energy or emission impacts, cost savings, etc.) that is most relevant to their priorities. The CURB tool is free to download and designed for Excel 2010 and later versions. The CURB User Guide explains the purpose and approach used in each of the six modules contained in the Toolkit. This Guide walks users through the process of operating each module and describes what type of output is ultimately generated to support local planning and decision-making. The CURB User Guide is available for download in both English and Spanish. The CURB Data Template describes what type of information is needed to run CURB. For each of the 6 sectors support in CURB, the data template details the data inputs and units that the user may provide for his or her city, noting that proxy data is available in case local information is unavailable or if gaps exist. The CURB Data Template can be used by city officials to collect data on the ground in preparation for scenario planning. CURB, was developed through collaboration between the World Bank Group, the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and AECOM Consulting. Each institution is actively engaged in supporting climate, energy, and sustainability planning efforts at the local scale in cities around the world.
