The UCCRN hosted the ARC3.2 International Initiating Workshop from September 17-19, 2013 at Columbia University in New York City. At the Initiating Workshop, over 115 participants from both developed and developing country cities gathered to define the content and structure of ARC3.2, set a timeline for writing, review, and publication, and develop extended outlines for the report.
The UCCRN ARC3.2 Midterm Authors Workshop took place from September 28-30, 2014 at The Crystal in London, and served as the midpoint ‘check-in’ as the Second Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities (ARC3.2) heads towards publication in late 2015. Participants included 80 urban climate change experts, stakeholders, and practitioners from over 40 cities in Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. This report serves as a synopsis of the event and the key themes that emerged.
ARC3.2 Summary for City Leaders will be presented in December 2015 at a UCCRN side session at the 21st UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris.
