Water, megacities and global change

Source(s):  Arceau Île-de-France - Association Recherche Collectivités dans le domaine de l'EAU
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization - Headquarters (UNESCO)

This overview of 15 emblematic cities, co-edited by UNESCO and ARCEAU-IdF, is simultaneously the result of concrete scientific presentations and a call for general mobilisation to devise the sustainable urban policies the world needs. This book marks an important phase in the creation of an alliance of megacities focused on water-related issues in the face of climate change.

The publication discusses the following themes, regarding vulnerability to climate change, and provides solutions from case-studies:

  • adapting to the risk of flooding (p. 24);
  • adapting to the risk of drought (p. 25-26);
  • adapting to other risks (p. 26-27);
  • gender equality and climate change adaptation (p. 30-33).
