DAC presents at the Climate Summit for Local Leaders

Posted in: Uncategorized

20151204_Climate SummitOn the 4th December, at possibly the largest ever climate change-focussed gathering of mayors, Councillor James Nxumalo presented the DAC Hub and Compact approach and Durban Knowledge Hub during ICLEI’s Agora Transformative Actions Programme side event and launch of the Urban Climate Change Research Network’s Second Assessment Report of Cities and Climate Change. Professor Jeffrey Sachs (Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University) reinforced the critical need for cities to transform to low carbon economies that have adapted to climate change.

The Summit was attended by a substantial number of climate change visionaries and champions including Leonardo di Caprio, Elon Musk, French President Hollande and the rest of the Durban delegation of five Councillors.
