Start preparing your submissions for the “Cities and Climate Change Science Conference: Fostering new scientific knowledge for cities based on science, practice and policy”. WCRP is pleased to work with the partner organizations, aiming to inspire the next frontier of research focused on the science of cities and climate change. The primary goal of the conference is to assess the state of academic and practice-based knowledge related to cities and climate change, and to establish a global research agenda based on the joint identification of key gaps by the academic, practitioner and urban policy-making communities.

The conference themes are:

  1. Cities & climate change (Imperatives for action)
  2. Urban emissions, impacts and vulnerabilities (Science and practice of cities)
  3. Solutions for the transition to low carbon and climate resilient cities (Science and practice for cities)
  4. Enabling transformative climate action in cities (advancing science and advancing cities)
