Latin American cities make a commitment to unity at COP21

By Mónica Fein, Intendant of Rosario, Argentina, and Vice President of Sustainable Urban Development and Climate Change, Mercociudades Network

As Intendant of Rosario and representative of the Mercociudades Network, I was invited to participate in the Climate Change Summit for Local Leaders in Paris in December in the context of the 21st United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP21).

In this context, we expressed the need for COP21 to listen to our cities, since climate change-related problems have an impact on the people living there.

Particularly, we sought to create an urban habitat that is more resilient to climate change.
