What We Do

UCCRN aims to institutionalize a sustained state-of-the-knowledge assessment process of climate change science, tailored for urban needs while drawing on the experience of cities as they act to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change and disaster risk. In doing this, the program’s researchers and stakeholders will provide time-sensitive research to enhance city action on climate change, with a particular emphasis on bridging the gap between leading and lagging cities, and promoting the rapid dissemination of best practices to city stakeholders and decision-makers. UCCRN is a valuable resource for researchers, individual cities, coalitions of Mayors, and organizations focused on providing technical assistance to cities.
