People aren’t driving everywhere, flying frequently or using tons of electricity. As a result, global carbon emissions could fall as much as 2.5 billion tonnes in 2020.
And city leaders are taking note. Amid the destruction of lives and the global economy, the pandemic is offering cities the unprecedented opportunity to restructure society sustainably and equitably on the other side.
Cities are some of the most vulnerable areas to climate change, but they are also a transformative force: Innovation and technological progress start in urban areas. Last month, 40 mayors and city leaders from 25 countries announced the launch of a task force, run by the C40 group of cities, to aid in a coordinated, green response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
