The 63 cities in the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group contain 8 percent of the world’s population, have a GDP the size of China’s – and the potential to reduce the global carbon emissions by a billion tons. In this podcast Rit Aggarwala, the former director of long-term planning and sustainability for New York City, discusses megacities’ leadership in addressing climate change and PlaNYC, with its goal to reduce New York City’s carbon footprint by more than 30 percent by 2030.
