Climate Change and Cities

IGLUS Quarterly, Vol 5, Issue 2-3, October 2019

Our planet is warming under dramatic environmental pressure and its climate is changing. The impacts of climate change are becoming more costly and more damaging day by day. Unfortunately, cities are main culprits. According to UN Habitat, cities consume 78 percent of the world’s energy by producing the majority of greenhouse gas emissions. By considering the consequences created by the cities, we have prepared this IGLUS Quarterly issue with key articles written by experts from cities around the world. We hope that we can bring new perspectives to readers and bring awareness about climate change to the citizens of the Earth.
