IPCC AR5: Climate Change: Implications for Cities

The Fifth Assessment Report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the most up-to-date, comprehensive and relevant analysis of our changing climate.

Urban centres account for more than half of the world's population, most of its economic activity and the majority of energy-related emissions. This briefing explores the roles cities will play in the fight against climate change.
