IPCC Sixth Assessment Report: Implications for Urbanisation

Following on from the first part of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report, Working Group II’s contribution, issued on February 28, 2022, draws on 34,000 research and 270 authors from 67 nations. It offers one of the most in-depth analyses of the escalating effects of climate change and future hazards, particularly for resource-poor countries and marginalized groups. The IPCC report for 2022 also specifies a chapter “Cities, Settlements and Key Infrastructure” that assesses climate change impacts and risks to cities, human settlements and key infrastructure as well as enabling conditions and options for adaptation. To elaborate more on the concerned discussion, #IMPRI Centre for Habitat, Urban and Regional Studies (CHURS), IMPRI Impact and Policy Research Institute in New Delhi organized a #WebPolicyTalk on the topic IPCC Sixth Assessment Report: Implications for Urbanisation as part of the series “The State of Cities – #Local Governance” on March 9, 2022.
