Re: equality on climate action plans. We want to address this as part of our green recovery from the pandemic work. Social justice and addressing inequalities are key principles in our climate change action plan. 18% of households in Manchester live in fuel poverty. 152 people a year die prematurely due to exposure to air pollution. So addressing social justice is key. And we have a lot of work to do!

How do you celebrate and communicate wins/progress achieved with network partners?For this programme and the past few major C40 programmes, eThekwini has a culture of developing learning notes that document our processes and learning curves. This is then shared with all network partners, including the developing cities to ensure that we leave no one behind. In addition, we encourage peer-to-peer exchange between cities. We now also note that more neighbouring municipalities are now following on our footsteps and are reporting on the CPD platform. In this way the impact is felt at a regional level.

To John and Mayor Kaunda - Stockholm is kind of a special case financially but are Boston and Durban worried at all about the financial fallout from Covid-19 and how huge shortfalls in revenue may impact progress on investing and planning to reduce emissions? Durban is a developing city, within a developing country. Our budgets are normally planned on a 3 year cycle. We have witnessed a drastic reduction in collection of rates and utility bills. The negative impact on the economy will negatively impact unemployment levels. However, it is important that we utilise Covid 19 as an real life example of the types of impacts we can see with climate change risks. Importantly going green can insulate business going into the unknown.
