Accelerating actions through city to city partnerships – before it is too late
La Paz is very beautiful, but very vulnerable to climate change, explainsMariana Daza von Boeck, Secretary for Environment for La Paz, Bolivia. During a severe drought last year, 30,000 people were without tap water for 3 months. During the 2016 UNFCCC climate conference, La Paz shared their experiences with other cities, and left with valuable lessons and partnerships. Local governments cannot wait for national governments to act on climate change. They must partner to reduce emissions today or we may not have the resources in the future to adapt.
