Climate projections predict both global warming and an increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme events, such as sea level rise, intense rains, hurricanes, floods, heat waves, desertification, forest fires in the vicinity of cities, etc. Each of these events will have an impact on cities, and require different adaptation strategies.
TLDR: Climate change is already impacting our cities and our lives. We need to think of the city of tomorrow as more resilient and sustainable. For this to happen, everyone must be involved in a systemic change in the way we design and build a green city.
