The C40 unveiled a new Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment to Action that will provide cities with the tools they need to prioritize climate adaptation measures and build more sustainable futures for their residents. The new C40 Risk Assessment Framework will enable cities to assess local climate risks with confidence, and then prioritize, invest in and execute on mitigating those risks.

At the CGI Mid-Year Meeting in NYC, President Bill Clinton, C40 Chair Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Secretary Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes participated in a roundtable discussion with C40 Mayors and business and technology leaders, which explored opportunities for investing in climate change adaptation, building resilient urban infrastructure, and mitigating climate risk.
