Report: Climate Emergency, Urban Opportunity

Thriving cities make prosperous countries

This report, a collaborative effort of more than 50 organisations brought together by the Coalition for Urban Transitions, outlines the immense social and economic benefits of creating compact, connected and clean cities with net-zero emissions, and presents a clear six-part action plan for national governments around the world.

Zero-carbon cities offer a powerful lever to secure economic prosperity and boost living standards across a country – all while tackling the climate crisis. City governments cannot realise this opportunity alone. National governments have unique and crucial roles to play.

The executive summary will shortly be available in Bahasa, French, German, Mandarin, Portuguese and Spanish.
