THE CLIMATE CITY

Provides professionals in finance, technology, and consulting with solutions for improving the quality of urban life under the changing climate

The Climate City provides cutting-edge approaches for developing resilient solutions to combat the effects of climate change in cities throughout the world. Linking finance and technology to policy and innovation, this highly practical resource outlines a global framework for mitigating and adapting to climate change and for effectively planning and delivering a low-carbon future.

This book addresses how cities can work effectively with each other to drive change, the importance of strong leadership and international cooperation, the role of innovative finance and technology to identify new economic opportunities, and more. Throughout the book, the authors address future trends such as the changing streetscape, connected infrastructure and eMobility, and autonomous vehicles, drones, and other emerging technologies. Designed to help all stakeholders build a pathway to a less resource-intensive future, The Climate City:
* Provides in-depth discussion of the technological, financial, and practical aspects of tackling climate change in urban environments
* Demonstrates why the global economy needs to transition to a low-carbon economy
* Describes the role of financial institutions and how they can allocate capital more efficiently
* Explains why and how challenges and priorities are different in the global north and south
* Illustrates how data can improve the ways cities use energy resources and operate transportation systems
* Discusses how citizen action can drive a new, more meaningful way of living in cities
* Features insights from political leaders such as the Mayor of Copenhagen, the Mayor of Los Angeles and the former Mayor of London and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

The Climate City is essential reading for city planners, policy makers, technologists, consultants, finance and business professionals, and general readers wanting to improve the cities in which they work and live.
