Greg Hands – 2021 Comments on Urban Sustainability

The comments made by Greg Hands, the Energy and Climate Change Minister, on 11 November 2021.

By 2050 urban areas will be home to two thirds of the world population, with the speed and scale of urbanisation set to lock in high-carbon infrastructure and inequality if we do not act now.

The UK’s new programme will provide invaluable support to cities across Africa, Asia and Latin America to help them grow sustainably, and make them resilient to climate risks, securing a greener future for generations to come.
