New Delhi International Conference on Cities & Climate Change

Events
Cities cover less than 1% of the planet’s surface, and are home to around 50% of the world’s population, and many of them see a rapid growth trend. Taken together, all cities and urban areas worldwide use 75% of the world’s energy and are responsible for 75% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Cities have traditionally been the places where many of the solutions to the world’s problems have been developed, making all cities potential leaders in the global effort for a low carbon future. Asia is arguably among the regions of the world most vulnerable to climate change. Climate change and climatic variability have and will continue to impact all sectors, from national and economic security to human health, food production, infrastructure, water availability and ecosystems.
