Cities are highly vulnerable, as well as major contributors, to climate change. Fortunately, cities are also promising sources of solutions.
This special collection considers cities’ implementation efforts towards achieving their transformation to low-carbon, climate resilient cities. It investigates the extent of progress and the effectiveness of solutions that cities are making to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impacts.
In particular, it provides a better understanding of whether and how cities are rolling out effective implementation measures, what (intended and unintended) effects such measures are having, and ultimately whether their implementation efforts are achieving the transformational changes needed to realize a low-carbon, climate resilient future.
