Edmonton to host first ever international conference on cities and climate change
Edmonton has been chosen to host the inaugural Cities and Climate Change Science Conference March 5-7, 2018.
The conference is co-sponsored by the Cities IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), part of the UN Environmental Program (UNEPO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The conference will welcome up to 1000 municipal representatives, scientists and academics from around the world to share the latest scientific research on climate change, and will inspire global and regional action within cities to address this complex issue.
The idea for a conference focusing on cities and climate change was born at COP22 (United Nations Climate Change Conference), which was attended by Mayor Don Iveson in 2016.
