Climate & Cities Conference

Date and Time

The Climate Alliance’s Asian regional committee is hosting a Climate & Cities virtual conference on the 28th and 29th October 2021. The conference will be open to all and will serve as an important opportunity to share emerging research on how Asian cities are being impacted by climate change and identify the opportunities to transform future cities towards a net zero economy.

Representing countries with some of the highest density cities on Earth, Asian cities have a critical role in both reducing emissions and planning for resilience. The organisers include Hokkaido University, Nanjing University, National University of Singapore and TERI School of Advanced Studies.

The conference will cover a number of thematic areas including successful case studies of collaborative works between universities and local governments, critical assessment approaches of vulnerabilities in urban systems and evidence-led recommendations on capability building in urban climate resilience.
