UCCRN supports IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Cities

by | April 7, 2016

Cities are already facing the impacts of climate change, and are highly vulnerable to a range of climate hazards. However, cities also play an integral role in tackling climate change.

Next week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will meet in Nairobi to decide on its work programme for the next reporting cycle. This includes a shortlist of Special Reports to be delivered in the upcoming years; among 27 proposals is the suggestion for an IPCC Special Report on Cities and Climate Change.

 An IPCC Special Report on Cities and Climate Change would act as the most comprehensive global resource on this topic, gathering in a single document all the long-term scientific evidence on climate impacts, challenges and solutions to climate action in cities.

UCCRN is a proud partner of the #CitiesIPCC campaign. We urge national governments to vote for a report on Cities and Climate Change.

Join the campaign, and show your support for a #CitiesIPCC report.
