Eliminer le diesel de nos villes

A l'échelon de plusieurs décennies et de millions de trajets, l'impact cumulé de ces comportements aura des effets dévastateurs sur le climat. Les maires des villes-mondes sont conscients de la menace posée par la pollution de l'air pour leurs concitoyens et pour la planète. C'est pourquoi les représentants des 90 plus grandes villes du monde, réunis lors du sommet des maires du C40 à Mexico, la considèrent comme l'une de leurs principales priorités.

"Sumamos 150 millones de habitantes entre todos y representamos un cuarto de la economía mundial", se jactó la parisina Anne Hidalgo, que desde hoy oficiará como presidenta del C40.

11 Cities that are Leading the Global Fight Against Climate Change

The U.S. government may not do much to slow climate change over the next four years. But cities — which are responsible for around 70% of global emissions — can. In many cases, they're already moving faster than national governments. (In the U.S., they're also pushing Trump to act.) As Michael Bloomberg says, it's in their self-interest. In San Francisco, for example, $77 billion worth of property is at risk from rising seas.

C40, a network of 80 global cities committed to fighting climate change, says 11,000 different climate actions are already underway in its cities. The 2016 C40 Cities Awards recognizes 11 cities that are leading on climate.

Women4Climate, le manifeste des femmes maires unies contre le réchauffement climatique

Les femmes sont les premières victimes du réchauffement climatique. Elles sont aussi, souvent, les premières à agir pour protéger l’environnement. C’est pourquoi les maires réunies au sommet de Mexico ont signé le manifeste « Women4Climate » qui vise à soutenir toutes les femmes du monde qui travaillent sur des politiques locales pour le climat. Anne Hidalgo, la maire de Paris, vient de prendre la tête de C40-Cities pour trois ans. Elle signe ce manifeste, que vous pouvez découvrir ci-dessous, avec dix autres femmes maires.

82 major cities are meeting this week to talk about how to limit the worst effects of climate change

This week, officials from Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Beijing and 82 other major cities — including more than 40 mayors — are meeting in Mexico City to share ideas about how to reverse course.

The cities belong to C40, a network launched in 2005 to combat climate change. In an analysis released Wednesday, the group said that actions taken over the next four years will determine whether cities do their part in meeting the goals of the Paris agreement on climate change signed last year by nearly 200 countries.

Sydney, Vancouver mayors vow to fight climate change despite Trump

Cities around the world can combat climate change without national government support, the mayors of Sydney and Vancouver said on Wednesday, amid fears that a Donald Trump U.S. presidency could undermine efforts to limit global warming.

The two were in Mexico City for the C40 Mayors' Summit, where nearly 50 mayors and deputies from around the globe will discuss environmental issues such as air pollution.

Mayors Set a Tight Deadline to Initiate Climate Action

At this week’s annual C40 Mayors Summit in Mexico City, a coalition of 90 cities at the forefront of the fight against climate change detailed everything cities have to accomplish in order to meet the agreement’s long-term goals. Their report, written with the engineering firm Arup, lays out an action plan to deliver on the promise of limiting the rise of global temperatures to less than 2 degrees Celsius, and critical progress must be made by 2020.

Mayors look to tackle climate change at city level

The Global Covenant of Mayors — formed from the merger of two earlier groups, the Compact of Mayors and the EU Covenant of Mayors — is one of the groups seeking to do more to address climate change than national governments. It brings together the leaders of about 7,100 towns and cities from 119 countries to work on best practice for curbing emissions and protecting against the possible threats posed by global warming.

Megacity planning must change in four years to limit global warming

The latest warning comes from the C40 group of mayors and city authorities that have signed up to their own limits on carbon and actions to combat climate change and reduce its impacts, often independently of their national or federal governments.

In a new report, entitled Deadline 2020, published on Tuesday and co-authored by the engineering firm Arup, they suggest that the next four years to the end of 2020 will be crucial in determining whether the world is able to limit warming to no more than 2C above pre-industrial levels – as called for in the Paris agreement signed by world governments last year – or busts that goal, with unpredictable and potentially irreversible effects on climate change.
