Climate change and cities: First assessment report of the urban climate change research network (ARC3)

Source(s):  Cambridge University Press
Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN)

This study details the risks global cities may face due to a warming world. It examines mitigation and adaptation strategies for developing and developed cities, enabling readers to utilize information on both, and leverage co-benefits between the two. It also provides case study illustrations from both developing and developed cities around the world provide urban decision-makers with state-of-the-knowledge on climate change and examples of effective and efficient practices with potential for scaling-up.

The study unites the work and effort of dozens of expert researchers worldwide - often bringing their international expertise to work in their own cities as local voices. An-depth analysis of climate trends and projections is provided for twelve cities in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the U.S., including Athens, Dakar, Delhi, Harare, Kingston, London, Melbourne, New York, São Paulo, Shanghai, Tokyo, and Toronto together with some key findings that illustrate the urgent need for improved urban preparedness and planning.
