- Cities & the climate crisis – part of the problem, and the solution
The UNFCCC Climate Change Conference is taking place in Lima, Peru between 1-12 December, 2014. As we work towards a new global treaty, which will be agreed in Paris 2015, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) continues to work with international partners to bring together credible climate change and development evidence to support relevant decision making. Over the next 2 weeks, we will work with researchers and practitioners to bring together three blogs focusing on: cities, sustainable energy and climate finance. These blogs will highlight ongoing initiatives and research work, as we strive to become more resilient to climate change.
Read the our first blog on 'cities and the climate crisis - part of the problem and the solution' authored by Jennifer Lenhart who is based at Wageningen University’s Environmental Policy Group.
Read our second blog on 'sustainable energy for all' written by colleagues at IDS and the International Institute of Environment and Development.
