Nashik launches its Climate Action Plan on Saturday

After Mumbai, Nashik is set to get its Climate Action Plan (CAP). Environment Minister of Maharashtra, Aaditya Thackeray, had launched the Nashik Climate Action Plan on Saturday.

As a part of the CAP, the World Resource Institute (WRI) will draft the CAP for Nashik over the next two years.

The CAP will focus on sustainable transportation, green energy and buildings, air quality, improving green cover, water and waste management.

A Climate Action Cell will be institutionalised in the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC). With this, Nashik is among the top five cities in the state that will create a CAP to ensure sustainable development in the city.

Thackeray said that the Ministry had launched Nashik Climate Action Plan, making Nashik the 5th city in Maharashtra to have implemented a CAP and have a Climate Action Cell.

He said that the Ministry aims at net-zero emissions by 2050 and has worked on a robust plan for climate change adaptation, mitigation and resilience. In the next two years, Nashik will work with WRI India, all departments of the city and relevant state departments for implementing a detailed climate action plan with the involvement of the citizens.
