Climate Action in Megacities 3.0 shows that cities are showing tremendous commitment to tackling climate change. However, there is an enormous number of actions that are not yet being taken which could make an even greater impact on emissions reduction and climate resilience.
This report, prepared by Arup and C40, presents evidence of cities’ potential for future climate action and establishes a framework to characterise the challenges that cities face. The report shows that political, regulatory and funding challenges are dominant across cities, and illustrates the role of collaboration, communication and coordination in overcoming complex challenges.
