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.
UCCRN Urban Design Climate Workshops (UDCWs) aim to integrate and scale-up climate change mitigation and adaptation in cities through knowledge sharing, collaboration, and action planning. These sessions bring together urban designers, urban planners, climatologists, policymakers, stakeholders, and graduate students. Topics of discussion include strengthening urban resilience, improving energy efficiency, and enhancing livelihoods. So far, UDCWs have taken place in New York, Paris, Naples, and Durban.
UCCRN was front and center at the Adaptation Futures 2023 Conference in Montreal this year, both as a conference sponsor and session organizer. The network hosted two well-attended sessions, and our members participated in events throughout the week.
We look forward to supporting the science and organization of the next Adaptation Futures Conference in Christchurch, New Zealand (2025).
UCCRN is hosting two sessions at the upcoming Adaptation Futures conference in Montreal next week. We hope to see members of the climate adaptation community in Montreal and at our sessions!
On October 3rd (11 AM - 12:30 PM), the Urban Climate Change Research Network’s (UCCRN) panel session will share critical research takeaways and policy recommendations from the first Elements of UCCRN’s Third Assessment Report on Cities and Climate Change (ARC3.3).
Dear UCCRN Members --
We are compiling new case studies for UCCRN’s Third Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities (ARC3.3) and are requesting your climate change and city case studies! With our 2,000+ member network of scientists, researchers, and practitioners, your knowledge and experience on urban climate change at the local level will provide valuable insight into city-specific risks, actions, and sector-specific themes.
