Cities are asked to respond to information requests using CDP-ICLEI Track and states and regions through CDP. For users who have already received a request to respond, the questionnaire can be accessed through an individual activation link sent by email from CDP. This email will contain instructions on how to access CDP’s secure online platform, which hosts the cities and states and regions questionnaire(s).

CDP’s disclosure platform consists of the dashboard and the Online Response System (ORS):

  1. The dashboard is a portal containing information regarding the Cities or States and Regions questionnaire, the projects or initiatives  you are being requested to respond to, your user account page, the Guidance tool and other resources
  2. The Online Reporting System (ORS) is where you input information into your questionnaire(s) and submit your response.   

If you have already received an activation link or have access to your city or state and region response dashboard and questionnaire, you can sign in here.

If you have not yet received a request to respond but you would like to, please register your interest:

  • Complete the cities registration form
  • After you submit the cities registration form, we will check the data you have supplied and send you an email with information on next steps. During busy periods this process may take a few weeks
