UN-Habitat launches #ClimateAction4Cities Campaign

Category: News
Organizations: UN Habitat

The UN-Habitat #ClimateAction4Cities Campaign aims to inspire and mobilize city leaders, communities, the private sector, urban professionals and the general public to take urgent action and promote climate solutions. The Campaign will focus on the urgent need for cities and national governments to reduce urban-based carbon emissions, adapt to the impacts, build resilience to climate change, particularly for the urban poor and build back greener after the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The Campaign forms part of the United Nations’ movement on climate action in the lead to the Climate Change Conference (COP26) which takes place in Glasgow, Scotland this November. One of the main UN goals in 2021 is to strengthen climate action both in terms of building a global coalition for carbon neutrality by 2050 and on adaptation and resilience.
