Climate Change and Cities: Second Assessment Report of the Urban Climate Change Research Network (2015)

Description

The ARC3.2 Report presents downscaled Climate Projections for approximately 100 cities and catalogues urban disasters and risks, along with the effects on human health in cities. ARC3.2 gives concrete solutions for cities in regard to mitigation and adaptation; urban planning and design; equity and environmental justice; economics, finance, and the private sector; urban sectors such as energy, water, transportation, housing and informal settlements, and solid waste management; and governing carbon and climate in cities. Other key topics include ecosystems and biodiversity, and urban coastal zones.
