The Middle East and North Africa region is already the hottest and driest on the planet, but the current level of emissions and expected #ClimateImpacts are set to make some areas uninhabitable. Without bold action, by 2100 50% of the population in the region will be exposed to “super-extreme” weather events. #Cities will be most impacted by the rising #Heat, with maximum temperature reaching or even exceeding 60°C in #MENA#UrbanCenters and #Megacities. In the Middle East, most capital cities could face four months of exceedingly hot days every year. 📉
The #BeatingtheRisingHeat session will serve as an important milestone on the road on what is needed to scale up implementation of #SustainableCooling solutions in the region, to deliver increased resilience to extreme #Heat, and do so without causing increased #Energy use and #Emissions.
Hosted by #UAE in collaboration with @UN Environment Programme ; @C40 Cities; @Cool Coalition; @Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction, this event will mark the regional launch of Beating the Heat: A Sustainable Cooling Handbook for Cities
