The Urban Climate Change Research Network’s Second Assessment Report on Climate Change in Cities (ARC3.2) is the second in a series of global, science–based reports to examine climate risk, adaptation, and mitigation efforts in cities.
The book explicitly seeks to explore the implications of changing climatic conditions on critical urban physical and social infrastructure sectors and intersectoral concerns.
The primary purpose of ARC3.2 is to inform the development and implementation of effective urban climate change policies, leveraging ongoing and planned investments for populations in cities of developing, emerging, and developed countries.
This volume, like its predecessor, will be invaluable for a range of audiences involved with climate change and cities: mayors, city officials and policymakers; urban planners; policymakers charged with developing climate change mitigation and adaptation programs; and a broad spectrum of researchers and advanced students in the environmental sciences.
This report had the contribution of Centro Clima’s researchers and collaborators, such as Emilio La Rovere, Martha Barata, Denise Silva, Martin Obermaier and Carolina Dubeux, and in its core which participated in the health chapter and in the case studies.
