Compact of Mayors announced 428 committed cities at COP21

On Monday December 7th 2015 at an official COP21/CMP11 Side Event on the Compact of Mayors, co-organizers ICLEI and UCLG announced that 428 cities and towns have committed to the Compact of Mayors. Of these 428 cities that have already committed to the Compact of Mayors, 43 of them are fully compliant. 

This side event, moderated by Gino Van Begin, Secretary General, ICLEI, provided an opportunity for dialogue to explore options for enhanced engagement of local and sub-national governments in raising the level of ambition and accelerating climate action at all levels, based on the outcomes of COP21. Maryke van Staden, ICLEI, noted that commitments already made could account for half of the total urban potential for emissions reduction by 2020, and highlighted planned activities for 2016.

In case you missed it, the IISD Reporting Services have made a full coverage of the event, which can be found here. We also invite you to check the video of the side event.
