The Urban Climate Change and Research Network (UCCRN), is calling for nominations of authors for the Third Assessment Report of Climate Change and Cities (ARC3.3). Both nominations and self-nominations are accepted.

To submit a nomination, please fill out all of the required information in the ARC3.3 Author Nomination form. The required information includes the nominee’s full name, institution or affiliation, email address, location, expertise, and top three Element preferences.

ARC3.3 will be published as 12 Special Reports in 2022 - 2024 on critical topics and key research gaps, by Cambridge University Press in their new Elements series. ARC3.3 will include 12 author teams, one for each special report topic:

The UCCRN New York Secretariat and the ARC3.3 Editorial Board, comprised of the UCCRN Hub Directors, will select the ARC3.3 Elements author teams using the Author Nomination form’s database. In the author teams, we are seeking gender and geographical balance as well as balance between those experienced with working on UCCRN ARC3 Series Reports and those new to the process.
