Cities at the center of global climate change

by Cop22 Marrakech



Day 3 of the Global Climate Action Agenda at COP22 was dedicated to cities and human settlements. Urban areas are responsible for an estimated 70% of energy-related global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with the building and construction sector accountable for over 20% of global emissions.

According to the World Bank adapting to climate change could cost $80 to $100 billion per year, 80% of which will need to be invested in cities in order to achieve the goal of keeping global warming under 2 degrees Celsius.

The event, co-organized by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), kicked-off with opening remarks from Gino Van Begin, Secretary General, ICLEI, Local Governments for Sustainability, Ambassador Laurence Tubiana, France High-Level Climate Champion and Mohammed Nabil Benabdallah, Minister for Housing and Urban Policy of Morocco. Each emphasized the important role that city governments play in addressing global warming.
