Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte recently met with C40 Cities Executive Director Mark Watts to explore potential partnerships and programs under C40 Cities.

The network is made up of over 100 leading cities around the world working together to mitigate the effects of climate change and promote climate justice. Quezon City has been an active member of C40 Cities since 2015.

Mayor Joy, together with Councilor Aly Medalla, Councilor Bernard Herrera, and representatives from the Quezon City Health Department (QCHD) and the Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability Department (CCESD), attended the Partnership for Healthy Cities summit in London, United Kingdom. The summit aimed to enhance Quezon City's strategies to combat non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and injuries.


During the meeting with Mr. Watts, Mayor Joy and her team discussed potential partnerships and programs that could further strengthen Quezon City's climate change initiatives. These include sustainable transportation, waste management, and renewable energy programs, among others.

Quezon City has been recognized for its efforts to address climate change, including the establishment of the city's own climate change department, the implementation of green infrastructure projects, and the launch of a citywide bike-sharing program.

The meeting with C40 Cities is part of the city's ongoing commitment to promoting sustainability and resilience, and to forging partnerships with other cities around the world to tackle the urgent challenge of climate change.
