This event will serve as the first introduction to the GCoM and to promote activities of the GCoM. The focus of the networking event is to promote inclusive climate action which could drive better environmental outcomes and social and economic co-benefits—to support and enhance the coherence and effectiveness of sustainable cities development strategy and actions. The elements of the inclusive climate action are an equitable plan to benefit marginalised population groups who experience more exposure to climate hazards and with inadequate or no capacity to adapt—the poor, women, children, seniors, and the disabled.
The event will will take place at the United Nation Conference Centre (meeting room MR G).
