Our cities already face extreme heat, food shortages, severe risk of flooding and rising inequality. Further climate breakdown will affect cities significantly. Despite this, cities are also the testbeds and trailblazers of climate innovation, developing and deploying innovative climate policies, projects and programmes across the built environment, transport and buildings sectors that deliver co-benefits for climate, health and social and economic indicators.
