C40 Mayors Summit Gets On the World’s Radar

Last week, the C40 Mayors Summit in Johannesburg got on the world’s radar garnering major coverage from major international news outlets – including Atlantic Cities and The Guardian. A significant amount of the coverage focused on the release of the Climate Action in Megacities 2.0, a report that features critical data around how C40 cities are acting to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. The report also functions as an historic cataloging and assessment of  the municipal power that mayors hold in their cities. We are sharing some of the critical coverage (below) as well as our comprehensive infographic about the report.

And in the blogosphere, Climate Progress and the Huffington Post were some of the higher-profile blogs that covered the summit.

We’re happy  to share some of these outputs with our readers, and will continue to update you on additional coverage and progress being made by C40 cities.
