For your listening pleasure – Toronto

August 28, 2007

Listen to a podcast interview that the David Suzuki Foundation had with the city of Toronto (Canada) about its climate action plan.

Being interviewed is Mr. Lawson Oates, Director of Environment for the city of Toronto.

More and more cities are facing the need to mitigate climate change while already adapting to the changes brought about by climate change.  ICLEI’s Cities for Climate Protection® (CCP) Campaign is an innovative international campaign that helps local government and their communities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on the environment.   And now, the CCP Campaign is launching the Adaptation Initiative, building capacity for climate change impacts at the local level.  For more information, please visit www.iclei.org/ccp.

Toronto is one of 17 local governments in Canada that are currently Members of ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability.  For more information on ICLEI and its activities in Canada, please visit www.iclei.org/canada.
