For this edition, we have decided to feature best practices as we continue on-going deliberations on Climate Change:
For centuries, cities have been at the heart of arts and culture, thriving business, and innovative ideas. Over 90 percent of urban areas are coastal, which means that most cities are extremely vulnerable to the effects of the climate crisis as sea levels rise, polar ice melts, and powerful storms sweep across these regions.
But here’s the good news: cities around the globe – places like Stockholm, Rio de Janeiro, and Seoul – are also at the forefront of some of the most powerful solutions to this crisis.
To find out how cities all around the world are stepping up to become leaders in clean energy and sustainable development, download the Cities100 illustrated guide.
Urban areas account for most of the world’s carbon emissions, and their share will continue to increase as two-thirds of the world’s population will call cities home by 2050. Booming populations bring with them challenges, but also many opportunities to adapt and grow sustainably.
In the guide, you’ll learn about 100 climate solutions from 61 cities in 10 different sectors, from clean energy and transportation to social equity and more.
