Highlighting recent environmental & natural risks
Amidst rising extreme weather events, wildfires, and natural disasters, these recent events serve as a compelling call for immediate action. They underscore the necessity of proactive measures to mitigate future risks and fortify the resilience of our urban landscapes.
Explore what cities are doing to address climate and natural risks
As the impacts of climate change and natural disasters become increasingly evident, cities worldwide are taking a proactive approach to address these challenges. By implementing innovative strategies and collaborating with various stakeholders, urban centers are striving to build resilience and mitigate the risks posed by a changing environment.
Identify areas that are most vulnerable to climate impacts.
Track progress on climate change mitigation efforts.
Evaluate the effectiveness of different climate policies.
Informed policy decisions can be used to address climate change mitigation and risk:
A city government can use data on sea level rise to develop a plan for building seawalls and other coastal defenses.
A national government can use data on greenhouse gas emissions to develop a plan for investing in renewable energy sources.
An international organization can use data on climate impacts to develop a plan for helping developing countries adapt to climate change.
By using data to inform policy decisions, we can make more informed choices about how to address climate change mitigation and risk. This can help to reduce the negative impacts of climate change and build a more sustainable future
