This Course is the result of a partnership of UN Habitat and the University of Pisa. It tackles the complex issue of governing climate resilient cities, assessing in a comparative fashion best practices and solutions. The Course targets primarily policy makers, public servants and practitioners, presenting theoretical and academic contents with a hands-on and practical approach. Specific contents within the general theme will be identified yearly and agreed upon by the organisers at every edition, based on current developments in the area.
The Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) hosted an official side event at the UN Climate Action Summit, titled: Science for Cities: Actions towards 1.5°C from a Global Network of Scientists, Practitioners, and Decision-Makers’ on September 21 at UN Headquarters.
