Description

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, mayors around the world are leading important efforts to protect their cities, and to build them back, stronger, healthier, greener, and more equitable than before. With the support of organizations such as the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (Global Covenant), cities are laying out roadmaps for a strong and sustainable recovery. These roadmaps champion investments in policies and programs that will bolster the economy, protect our planet, and reduce inequities, and call on national governments and central banks for support. With mayors leading the way, there is hope that the pandemic and climate change can be tackled at the same time.
