On December 2, 2016, the sixth biennial C40 Mayors Summit dropped the curtain in Mexico City. As C40’s flagship event, it brought together mayors and leading thinkers from 90 cities around the world. Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei Province, was invited to present its research and actions for climate change.
C40, or the Cities Climate Leadership Group, now in its 10th year, connects more than 80 of the world’s greatest cities, representing over 600 million people and one quarter of the global economy. Created and led by cities, C40 is focused on tackling climate change and driving urban action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, while increasing the health, wellbeing and economic opportunities of urban citizens.
Wuhan made into the C40 two years ago, becoming the fifth Chinese city of this group. And in 2015, the city was awarded the C40 Cities Awards for the project of ecological restoration of the Jinkou Landfill, which successfully transformed the largest dumping point into an ecological park.
According to the official website of the C40, four Wuhan projects, namely, the Public Bicycle Project, the New Energy Research Institute, the Sponge City Project and the Baibuting Community, were elected into the Cities 100 this year.(hubei.gov.cn by Ruan Xinqi)
