The Municipality of the Metropolitan District of Quito published its climate action plan (PACQ) for the city, detailing the way forward to make Quito a GHG neutral and climate resilient city by 2050, using a step-wise approach by identifying goals, targets and prioritised actions for the short (2023), medium (2030) and long term (2050). The plan follows the city's three main objectives regarding climate policy: 1) to slow the growth of the carbon footprint, 2) to boost resilience and reduce social vulnerability through Nature-Based Solutions (NBS), and 3) to ensure the well-being, health and quality of life of citizens.
