Interview with Pat Finnegan, Co-ordinator, Grian, Ireland

Shifting the dominant thinking of the last 10 years, that mitigation is a burden to be avoided at all costs, and recasting it into the idea that well-designed and programmatic decarbonisation offers major net national benefits for employment, manufacturing and GDP. The question hanging over Cancun is whether the USA as a whole is ready for this yet.

Interview with Axumite Gebre-Egziabhr, Director, UNHABITAT

Cities both contribute to climate change and are affected by its impacts. However, the degree to which any city’s emissions contribute to climate change is not necessarily matched by the range and severity of impacts. Both adaptation and mitigation strategies in urban areas require new and improved infrastructure and basic services.
