Cities are at the frontlines of the climate crisis, and CDP data shows that 85% of cities report that they are already feeling the weight of climate hazards from extreme heat, flooding and rainstorms. Meanwhile, 70% of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050, meaning that, to sustain future economic growth and remain safe and secure places to live and work, cities must deliver urgent climate action fast. Fortunately, there are steps that cities can, and are taking to build a resilient and climate safe future. Explore our webinars below to learn more.
CDP is inviting data scientists to explore the information supplied to us in our annual reporting process, in search of solutions to the most pressing problems related to climate change, water security, deforestation, and social inequity that cities are facing today.
Subnational governments, including cities are critical for driving strong environmental action and ratcheting up national climate commitments. The Race to Zero Dialogues event series will chart how cities and other actors are already rapidly transitioning to a zero-carbon future, as defined in the Climate Action Pathway.
CDP hosted three webinars on the co-benefits of city climate action, providing cities with an overview of the types of co-benefits climate action can deliver and information on how cities can use co-benefits to support their transition to a low-carbon future.
CDP have hosted several climate and urban health focused webinars to provide cities with introductions to various critical urban health issues and instructions on where to find more information and support.
