Join us in exploring the intersection of the IPCC Cities Research Agenda and the IPCC Culture and Heritage Research Agenda.

In the summer of 2020, the IPCC Executive Committee endorsed a proposal for a co-sponsored International Expert Meeting on Culture, Heritage and Climate Change to be organized by UNESCO and ICOMOS, with IUCN and ICLEI among the key partners to be held in 2021.

One of the specific aims of the Meeting is to take stock of methods and gaps in translating knowledge from and about culture and heritage for climate science and policy, with the goal of stimulating new approaches and literature that will support the AR7 and the forthcoming special report Cities and Climate Change.

The Scientific Steering Committee for this Meeting is being convened in September. This event will be the first opportunity to present in detail the scientific questions and timeline for this meeting with an emphasis on the intersection between these and the IPCC Cities Research Agenda.

As part of the Daring Cities 2020 Forum and in the framework of Urban October, the Climate Heritage Network is pleased to presen this program exploring theintersection of the IPCC Cities Research Agenda and the IPCC Culture and Heritage Research Agenda.
