Day 1: Urban Climate Mitigation 101

"An overview of the challenges that cities face in addressing climate change and the role cities play in achieving emissions reductions and other ambitious targets including the Paris Agreement and countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions."

Cities are integral to tackling the global climate crisis. This 4-day master class aims to build the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to help operational teams and their client cities to both better understand the impacts of climate change and transition to low-carbon development pathways. As teams anticipate the alignment of all new operations with the global targets of the Paris Agreement by FY2023, this master class seeks to support Bank teams to further mainstream climate-related considerations in Bank operations and analytics and into the DNA of practitioners engaged in urban development and service provision. 

Day 1 provides an overview of the challenges that cities face in addressing climate change and discusses the role they play in achieving emissions reductions and other ambitious targets including the Paris Agreement and countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions. The session also introduces the key concepts of urban climate mitigation, including emissions sources and scopes, tools, methodologies, and spatial approaches for measuring GHG emissions.
