CITY MANAGER Sibusiso Sithole said, in a release, "Over the past few years, the municipality has made good progress in developing and implementing climate-change mitigation and adaptation initiatives. Many of these initiatives have received international recognition." The waste-to-energy project was spearheaded by the Durban Solid Waste Unit in conjunction with the Environmental Planning and Climate Protection Department and "serves as a good example for embedding climate-change consciousness within the existing operations of the municipality." Councillor James Nxumalo, mayor of eThekwini Municipality, said, "eThekwini Municipality is a leader in the field of climate-change adaptation. This is an important achievement for an African city, given that cities on this continent will likely face some of the most severe impacts associated with climate change. Pilot projects that demonstrate meaningful learnings are critical if we are to successfully plan and set in place the necessary adaptation measures."
