Abstract

The aim of the Tyndall Centre Cities Programme is to develop a city-scale assessment capacity that simulates the evolution of climate impacts and emissions over the 21st century. This city-scale assessment tool will be applied for urban policy-makers, planners, engineers and other stakeholders to compare alternative adaptation and mitigation strategies and to consider how cities grow whilst reducing emissions and vulnerability to climate change.
