Ghana : Accra Metropolitan Assembly named among 21 most active cities in C40 regions for 2019

jeudi 9 avril 2020


Ghana’s capital city, Accra, has been adjudged one of the most active among twenty-one others in the world by the C40 Cities climate leadership group a network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change for taking ambitious climate action.

According to the international organization in a statement released on Monday, the City of Accra and other cities did not only take " exceptional measures and contributed additional resources to support the sharing of best practices among cities but also provided extraordinary thought leadership and represented the C40 network globally."
The C40 Cities also revealed that the leading cities had been extraordinarily active in the C40 network throughout 2019 hence the need to" take a step back and acknowledge the great level of commitment, engagement and participation of member cities in 2019.

"2019 has been an extraordinarily important year. Twelve C40 cities published plans which will help C40 collectively half emissions by 2030 to deliver low-carbon resilient and inclusive development consistent with the 1.5˚C goal. Over 50 more C40 cities are set to follow suit in 2020," the release said.
Mr Desmond Chris Appiah, C40 City Advisor/Chief Sustainability and Resilience Advisor to the Mayor of Accra, who is the city lead in a reaction stated that Accra would be the second city to release its a climate action plan, in Africa which would target key greenhouse emission sources now and projected to increase if business as usual scenarios continues.
