We are entering a historic decade of urgent climate action. Meanwhile, climate change and environmental challenges already pose major and current global threats and are exacerbating the current economic downturn. It is more essential than ever for companies, cities, states and regions to disclose their environmental data through CDP and take decisive action. As always, our workshops will support you on this journey, this year in an online format. We invite you to join us for a series of virtual events this May and June, both global and region-specific, as we drive ambitious sustainability action worldwide.
13:00 BST / 08:00 EDT / 20:00 HKT. 85% of cities reported climate hazards in 2019 but only 46% of these cities completed risk and vulnerability assessments that help them assess the real-world impact of these hazards. Comprehensive risk and vulnerability assessments are critical to develop a picture of current and future climate risks and opportunities. Hear information on how to assess adaptive capacity and cope with uncertainty with a particular spotlight on water security within risk and vulnerability assessments. Dale Sands, who co-chairs the United Nations ARISE Global Board (in association with UNDRR) will share resources and tools that can support cities in conducting CRVAs. The City of Cascais, Portugal will share their experiences producing a risk and vulnerability assessment and we will hear from the CDP Director of Water Security on the methods of integrating water into effective climate risk and vulnerability assessments.
13:00 BST / 08:00 EDT / 20:00 HKT. The recent pandemic has brought to light the impact that air pollution has on our health, resilience and skylines. In this webinar, we will be joined by the Deputy Mayor of Rennes, Charlotte Marchandise – who also serves as the President of WHO’s Healthy Cities for France and the co-president of GUAPO - Global Urban Air Pollution Observatory. The webinar will also welcome Nathalei Roebbel, who serves as the Technical Officer for Social Determinants of Health for the World Health Organization (WHO). Together, we’ll discuss pragmatic and cost-effective measures that cities can consider to target pollutants in key sectors, and bring substantial benefits for public health, air quality, near-term climate protection, and economic growth.
