This briefing looks at the challenge of addressing the environmental consequences of rapid urban growth. Cities are vital economic hubs, but they are also leading sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Poorly managed population growth, particularly in emerging cities, results in costly and inefficient infrastructure and services, and high energy consumption. Climate change will exacerbate these trends and risks. This pattern can be broken by planning for climate resilience through compact, connected and coordinated urban development and other structured approaches to assessing and responding to climate-related risks. Capacity building may be essential to ensure effective implementation of plans and tools.
