Group Hastings Chikoko paid eThekwini Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda
a visit to offi cially welcome him to the C40 Cities Steering
Committee.
ETHEKWINI Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda has been elected to the C40 Cities Steering Committee, which is the governing body providing strategic direction for the global network of about 94 cities committed to taking bold climate change decisions.

Mayor Kaunda said it was a great honour to be elected to the steering committee. “Durban is one of the globally recognised cities that are leading in the climate change agenda, especially climate change adaptation, which is more relevant to most of the developing African cities,” he said. Mayor Kaunda commended Durban for being consistent and progressive in being an ambassador and an advocate for climate change. “Having hosted numerous workshops for the Adaptation Charter, our City presents a reputable platform for partnerships and learning exchanges for other African cities,” he said.

Mayors of the C40 cities represent over 700 million citizens and one quarter of the global economy. They are considered the strongest champions of the Paris Agreement and are committed to delivering on its highest ambition to keep global temperature rise to below 1.5 °C.

Mayor Kaunda said eThekwini was the first C40 megacity in the African region and one of the eight global pilot cities to develop and adopt its 2020 Climate Action Plan. “During the process of developing the Climate Action Plan; the City documented its journey into a learning note that will empower other African cities who will be going through the same process. “Through this learning note, we believe that our fellow African cities will be better equipped to deal and even avoid some of the challenges they may encounter during this process,” he said.
