We would like to invite UCCRN members to submit an abstract for the workshop session “Integrating adaptation and mitigation strategies in urban areas: The UCCRN Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities.” during the European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA) 2015 that will be held from 12th to 14th May 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This would be great opportunity for ARC3-2 Chapter Authors to align with Chapter 3 and develop ideas about Mitigation/Adaptation interrelationships and receive feedback from different stakeholders.

Objective of the session

Climate change mitigation and adaptation are areas of high priority action in the urban context. These are often dealt with as separate issues in academic research, international climate talks, as well as national and local policy-making -leading to a situation where these focus areas often compete for funding and for decision-makers’ attention. The session will discuss the main challenges and potential of cities to integrate climate change adaptation and mitigation actions.

The session will also discuss the experiences of cities from different geographical regions regarding how they address climate adaptation and mitigation conflicts, synergies and trade – offs. Drawing lessons from selected cities, the session will illustrate the need and importance of building a robust climate knowledge base in cities to support them in developing climate change actions strategies to address both climate adaptation and mitigation in an integrated manner.
