Third Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities (ARC3.3)

Elements in Climate Change and Cities – published in collaboration with Cambridge University Press – provides readers with urban climate change knowledge, tools, and case studies to heighten opportunities for sustainability and resilience in cities worldwide. This twelve-publication series forms UCCRN’s Third Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities (ARC3.3), building on the preceding ARC3.1 (2011) and ARC3.2 (2018).

UCCRN Regional Hubs

Building on a series of scoping sessions with stakeholders and members, UCCRN is transitioning from a report-focused organization to one that leads an on-going, sustained global city-focused climate change knowledge assessment and solutions program. The program is targeted to early, mid, and late-adopter cities through the expansion of the UCCRN to include proactive Regional Hubs, with field directors, program coordinators, and researchers that strengthen ongoing collaborations and knowledge exchange both for and with cities.
