Cities and Climate Change PDF, The 5th Urban Research Symposium on Cities and Climate Change—Responding to an Urgent Agenda, held in Marseille in June 2009, sought to highlight how climate change and urbanization are converging to create one of the greatest challenges of our time. Responding to this challenge effectively and sustainably is a key objective for governments, authorities, institutions, and other organizations involved in urban development processes.
Cities and Climate Change
The World Bank, the French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing, and the French Development Agency were therefore particularly committed to the co-organization of the symposium.
Cities consume much of the world’s energy and thus produce much of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Yet cities, to varying extents, are also vulnerable to climate change impacts, with poor populations facing the greatest risk.
Thus, adaptation and increased resilience constitute priorities for every city, and cities have a key role to play in mitigating climate changes.
Climate change mitigation and adaptation in cities has emerged as a new theme on the global agenda, creating a strong desire among governments, the private sector, and the academic community worldwide to learn from experiences and good practice examples.
The 5th Urban Research Symposium made an important contribution to the growing body of knowledge and practice in the area of city and climates change. During the three-day symposium, approximately 200 papers were presented to more than 700 participants representing more than 70 countries.
As co-organizers, we found it very rewarding to have such an audience and to see the wide range of topics discussed, from indicators and measurement to institutions and governance.
