The Quezon City government has teamed up with the United Kingdom government and C40 Cities to launch its Climate Action Implementation (CAI) Program, which seeks to address the effects of the climate crisis.

Under the CAI, which is funded by the UK government, Quezon City would provide technical assistance and capacity building programs for energy efficiency and conservation, and the adoption of renewable energy in establishments.

These are two of the city’s priority actions based on its Enhanced Local Climate Change Action Plan, according to the city government.

Quezon City Mayor joined the launch of the CAI, along with Vice Mayor Gian Sotto, British Ambassador to the Philippines Laure Beaufils, C40’s Regional Director for East, Southeast Asia, and Oceania Milag San Jose-Ballesteros and Council Committee on Parks and Environment chair Councilor Vito Sotto Generoso.

C40 is a network of mayors of close to 100 cities that are working together to confront the climate crisis.
