Source(s):  Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN)

This is the Summary for City Leaders of the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) Second Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities (ARC3.2).

ARC3.2 presents a broad synthesis of the latest scientific research on climate change and cities1 . Mitigation and adaptation climate actions of 100 cities are documented throughout the 16 chapters, as well as online through the ARC3.2 Case Study Docking Station. Pathways to Urban Transformation, Major Findings, and Key Messages are highlighted here in the ARC3.2 Summary for City Leaders. These sections lay out what cities need to do achieve their potential as leaders of climate change solutions. 

The ARC3.2 Summary for City Leaders synthesizes Major Findings and Key Messages on urban climate science, disasters and risks, urban planning and design, mitigation and adaptation, equity and environmental justice, economics and finance, the private sector, urban ecosystems, urban coastal zones, public health, housing and informal settlements, energy, water, transportation, solid waste, and governance. These were based on climate trends and future projections for 100 cities around the world.
