To meet the Paris Agreement goal of keeping global heating below 1.5˚C, the world’s megacities must act collectively to halve emissions by 2030, and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. This was the main conclusion from the Deadline 2020 report, launched in 2016. Since then, C40 cities have embarked on an ambitious programme to develop science-based climate action plans that are aligned with these mitigation goals and will help cities adapt to the impacts of climate change, whilst also delivering wider social, environmental and economic benefits.
 
As the decade of climate action begins, it is critical that cities share their experiences and insights and work together to overcome barriers to action.

Good climate governance for mainstreaming climate action in cities

Morten Nordskag, Political Adviser to the Vice Mayor of Environment and Transport, City of Oslo; Pamela Bravo, Deputy Manager of Environmental Strategy and Climate Change, City of Lima, and Rabelani Tshikalanke, Head: Climate Change and Resilience, City of Johannesburg – 11/25/2020 13:00 UTC   Find your time zone

In order to achieve the the systemic, long term change needed to respond to the climate emergency, cities need to ensure that climate resilience and carbon neutrality are embedded into every aspect of a city’s operations and administration. In this webinar, three C40 cities, Oslo, Lima and Johannesburg, shared their experiences and discussed some of the key components of good climate governance that has helped them accelerate climate action on the ground.
