Urban Climate Change Adaptation

The Urban Climate Change Research Network, an international team led out of Columbia University’s Earth Institute, is currently preparing the Second Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities for release in December 2015 at theĀ  Conference of Parties (COP) 21 in Paris with case study docking stations and other web data access available for the June 2016 United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III).

The report is a collaboration of over 450 practitioners and scholars from across the globe who are addressing issues associated with implementation at the urban level of the Durban Adaptation Charter for Local Governments. Dr. Peter Meyer, EPSG President, is one of the Lead Authors of the key cross-cutting issues chapter on Economics, Finance and the Role of the Private Sector and will be participating in the publication and launch events.
