Short summary
The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM), the largest international initiative to promote climate action at the city level, has collected a large amount of information on urban greenhouse gas emissions. Here we present the harmonised, completed and verified GCoM emission dataset, originating from 6200 cities among its signatories, complemented with a set of useful ancillary data. This knowledge will contribute to covering the lack of consistent datasets of cities' emissions.
