This presentation (From Rhetoric to Reality: facing the challenges of climate change) and Q&A on climate change was given to Manchester City Council (MCC) leader (Richard Leese), the full cohort of city councillors and the Lord Mayor. Building on three MCC documents, their Climate Change Strategy, the Manchester – A Certain Future (refresh) report, and the Poverty Commission report), the presentation downscales international commitments on reducing emissions from the global to UK-city level (with particular focus on Manchester).
