Big Cities should become signatories to the UNFCCC @COP26

Simon Jenkins is right to say “Big Cities can show us the way to a more climate-friendly …” world on the 22nd of Oct particularly with the level of urbanisation happening around the world now, with more people in the world living in urban than in rural settings since 2010, and many Asian Mega-cities with 20 million plus populations.

Unfortunately, they are not party to the official COP26 and maybe they should be in future, particularly when their nation states let us down with their National Climate Plans (NCP) . They could then come up with their own City Climate Plans for submission as City Conference of the Parties and be measured against their own targets and others as well.

So l trust the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat are listening.
