Policies for cities fighting climate change

Policies for cities fighting climate change

January 15, 2011

Jorge Quiroga (President of Bolivia, 2001-2002) represented the Club of Madrid at the Global Urban Development Forum hosted by the International Economic Club of China in Beijing (5-7 January). The theme of this year’s forum was “New Energy, New Technology, Smart City and Sustainable Development”. President Quiroga centred his speech on adaptation and mitigation policies for cities fighting climate change, and presenting the Club of Madrid recommendations produced in this respect. As China is taking the lead in urban development this new millennium and has, in fact, become the world’s number one investor in clean energy and technology, this was a key opportunity that allowed us to  open a door for further work with Chinese authorities – key players in future negotiations in the international agenda.
