COP27- Delivering net-zero resilient cities through research & innovation
November 15 @ 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm Egypt
WGIC joins the event organized by the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy at COP27.
Cities and local governments are key actors in delivering a safe, low-emission, and resilient future. But as the City Research and Innovation Agenda and updated Global Research and Action Agenda show, they need help getting there.
Capacity around city-scale data, finance, and stronger governance – plus emerging issues such as digitalization, cultural heritage, and systems approaches, among others – are key enablers, but more is needed to demonstrate feasibility.
Using the agendas as an evidence base for cities, we preview the opportunities that can convert local ambition into action at the speed and scale required to meet the moment.
