Planners and others continue to explore how the world's cities will be affected by climate change in the coming decades, and this 62-page report released by the United Nation's Human Settlement Programme takes a close look at the subject. This abridged version of the full report argues, "local action is indispensable for the realization of national climate change commitments agreed through international negotiations." Visitors will find that the report is divided into six chapters, including "Urbanization and the Challenge of Climate Changes" and "The Impacts of Climate Change on Urban Areas". The report draws on a wide range of scholarly data taken from UN reports, along with others working in the field of climate change and environmental science.
