The case studies in this report provide potential indicators to promote and measure transitions toward climate neutrality across a range of sectors: buildings, transport, industry, agriculture, and power sectors, as well as the transition towards climate-resilient water access and land use for rural and urban communities. Moreover, all case studies explore transition indicators to facilitate public understanding of the core benefits of the transition, as well as to champion an inclusive dialogue on this matter.

Deviating from most other studies, the search for suitable indicators was not constrained to indicators based on readily available data. Instead, the suitability for engagement, an inclusive dialogue, target setting, and tracking progress were the guiding principles. We find that transition indicators have the potential to effectively support a transition toward climate neutrality and climate resilience. The illustrative examples within the case studies could, in each instance, inform discussions over the suitable choice of such transition indicators at the national level.
