An estimated 70 percent of global greenhouse-gas emissions come from cities. Rapid urbanization is expected to continue, intensifying even further the energy use in the cities. Yet there is also an opportunity. Cities are also where the greatest energy efficiencies can take place. Learn more about how cities are tackling climate change – with innovative approaches to improving city management and service delivery, to encouraging green growth.
This document presents an Urban Climate Action Impacts Framework that can be applied when exploring the wider impact of city climate action. The report functions as a user guide with common principles, taxonomy and guidelines for approaching the mapping and assessment of those wider impacts. This is the evidence that urban stakeholders need to guide and make the case for climate action.
