Fifteen of the largest cities and towns in Israel have signed an international environmental resolution to cut down on greenhouse gases emissions, joining 800 local governments worldwide.
The pledge is to reduce emissions by 20% by 2020.
It will be interesting to see how this resolution is enforced. While there’s a lot of talk about which areas will be addressed (such as transportation) it still seems unclear how that would work. There will be initiatives to plant more gardens and trees, which is never a bad thing.
