Urban centers account for more than half of the world's population, most of its economic activities and the majority of energy-related emissions.
This publication by the European Climate Foundation (ECF), Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) and the University of Cambridge offers a summary on key findings of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) with implications of climate change for urban areas.
