Answer for Local Government Climate Roadmap

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My office and the wider GLA have had no direct involvement in this initiative but as members of Eurocities and the Covenant of Mayors in Europe, who are partners and supporters of this initiative, we have indirect involvement through these networks with the initiative.

 

I believe that cities have a very important role to play in mitigating and adapting to climate change. This is illustrated by the ambitions in my Climate Change Mitigation and Energy and Climate Change Adaptation Strategies and also through my involvement in C40, which is driving reduction on climate change.
