FCM seeking Municipal Partners!!

Building Inclusive Green Municipalities is a five year, $5.8M initiative. Funding includes a $4.9M contribution from Global Affairs Canada as well as in-kind contributions from Canadian and South African municipalities.

Building Inclusive Green Municipalities’ focus:

  • Improve the capacity of South African municipal governments to support effective service delivery, inclusive local green economic growth and enhanced climate change mitigation and adaptation measures.
  • Empower women, youth and vulnerable groups, and ensure their inclusion in the political, economic and social life of their community.
  • Reduce poverty and improve climate change mitigation in targeted municipalities of the Eastern Cape Province.

AGM & Workshop wrap up – Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who supported the event! It could not have been a success without you!

Materials from the event can be found at the following link: Presentations & Workshop Materials. A few items, including the work completed as part of the workshop are still to be posted, but will make their way on soon.

I’m please to announce that Sam Sidawi from City of Hamilton is our new Vice-Chair.

Over the next two years, we will be focusing on engaging municipalities and organizations across Ontario, implementation-specific workshops & training, and digging deeper through task-specific working groups covering areas such as best practice & knowledge sharing, data and decision support systems/tools, province-wide benchmarking, and confidential peer-review feedback.

Stay tuned for more updates and see you at the City of London for our next meeting in September!
