UGEC session at the ‘Third International Climate Change Adaptation Conference 2014′

UGEC is organizing a session ‘Learning from Cities’ at the ‘Third International Climate Change Adaptation Conference 2014′.*

As part of UGEC’s synthesis efforts, this session will take an analytical approach to better understand the effectiveness, benefits, and unintended negative consequences of urban adaptation responses to climate change. From a global perspective, what can we learn from the diversity of responses that exist and what are the implications for city-level policies and development?
