Room 4, Meeting Level
SSC/OC Led Parallel Session Future Research Agenda in Salon 8
15:30 - 16:30
Developing a future research agenda on cities and climate change is a complex task. Setting out to co-design this research agenda across the science, policy, and practice communities makes it daunting task, but one that must occur. This session will open with an overview of a recently published Nature Comment entitled “Six Research Priorities for Cities and Climate” authored by members of the CitiesIPCC Scientific Steering Committee. Following the opening presentation, a panel of scientists, policy makers, and practitioners will build upon the Nature Comment and discuss the opportunities and challenges of designing and implementing a new cities and climate change research agenda that brings together science, policy, and practice.
