Rosenzweig, C., 2022: Cities and climate change. In Our Warming Planet: Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation, Lectures in Climate Change, vol. 2, World Scientific, pp. 294-317, doi:10.1142/9789811238222_0014.

Cities and urban areas are now recognized as globally significant in regard to climate change because they are responsible for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions as well as being highly vulnerable to extreme weather events. Because cities are at the nexus of both the causes and effects of climate change, they have emerged as leaders in climate change response actions via low-carbon and adaptation innovation. However, for cities to achieve their potential as climate change leaders, they require joined-up timescales transformation in a number of spheres: integration of mitigation and adaptation responses, timescales of environmental challenges, expansion of decision-making discourse, and enhanced capacity in governance and finance.
