Cities Matter

Capacity building in sub-Saharan African megacities for transformational climate change mitigation

This programme aims to support C40 member cities in sub-Saharan Africa to develop robust, long-term climate action plans that align with the goals of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement, and that will catalyse transformative climate action that drives ambitious GHG reductions while enhancing climate resilience and addressing social and economic development needs. Enhanced linkages between city and national climate action will be promoted through dialogue on alignment of climate response actions and possible options for the adoption of city actions in national NDCs and NAMAs.SEA, a key support partner will be involved in building technical capacity within nine African cities to deliver long-term climate action plans that are compliant with the Paris Agreement.
