Sustainable Cities: Building a greener Memphis

As part of the Global Covenant of Mayors, the city of Memphis in Tennessee has committed to combat climate change and moving towards a low emission, resilient city. Situated on the banks of the Mississippi River, it's increasingly vulnerable to flooding, water pollution and scarcity. With climate disasters bringing punishing winds, floods and rain to the East Coast of the United States, putting millions of lives at risk, we need climate leaders to prepare us for moments like these.

In this short film, CDP explores how the people of Memphis are working together to factor water into their thinking across government, business and communities.
