This publication is a call to action for cities to address climate change. It takes the view that this challenge also presents cities with an opportunity to review urban policy and local strategies which can lead to greater livability and vibrancy. To that end, it offers twelve key messages and a series of practical case studies showing how cities can respond to the challenge of climate change in a way that ultimately improves urban sustainability.
