Slide 1: UCCRN at UN Climate Action Summit
Slide 2: UCCRN Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary
Slide 3: C40 The Future We Don't Want - How Climate Change Could Impact the World's Greatest Cities
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.
COVID-19 has plunged the world into the deepest crisis in industrial history in just a few months. What began as a local epidemic in Wuhan in December 2019 has developed into a global pandemic along the travel and trade networks so characteristic of 21st Century globalization. The inevitable lock-down has led to GDP losses in the G7 countries of between 20–30% for the first two quarters of 2020.
UCCRN would like to share an upcoming, virtual learning opportunity!
The ambitious multidisciplinary program, called "Governing Climate Resilience Cities", will focus on urban climate resilience, including climate science, biology, NBS, urban planning, design, law, and governance.
The 5-day course is organized by University of Pisa in partnership with University of Naples, UN-Habitat, and UCCRN.
Dr. Chantal Pacteau, UCCRN’s European Hub Co-Director and Dr. Mattia Leone, Scientific Responsible of the Urban Climate Workshops Series for the European Hub, virtually “sat down” with UCCRN intern Sylvie Binder to discuss their work and the importance of promoting proactive governance in climate and COVID-19 realms.
