Mayor: Dave Cull
Dunedin is the second largest city in the South Island of New Zealand. Dunedin is experiencing and will continue to experience the impacts of climate change. As part of its commitment to the Global Covenant of Mayors, Dunedin will measure its greenhouse gas emissions, set targets to reduce emissions, report on progress and deliver a climate action and adaptation plan.
The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy is an international alliance of cities with a shared long-term vision of promoting voluntary action to combat climate change and transition to low-emission and resilient societies. The Global Covenant now includes over 9,130 cities from 120 countries, representing over 775 million people and 10.55% of the total global population, and is the largest global network of councils leading action on climate change.
