Climate Change: Implications for Cities (2014)

Description

The Fifth Assessment Report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the most up-to-date, comprehensive and relevant analysis of our changing climate. Urban centres account for more than half of the world's population, most of its economic activity and the majority of energy-related emissions.

This briefing explores the roles cities will play in the fight against climate change and presents the key findings.
