To stay ahead of climate change, cities need to act now

RT @apoliticalco: The world's cities are preparing for climate change 🌁🌎 Cities in #Argentina 🇦🇷 and #Colombia 🇨🇴 have showed the importance of democratic processes and of land use management What else can cities learn from each other? @Dsatterthwaite @IIED https://t.co/iUjfgA0f5W

Finding the money to invest in climate adaptation is difficult, especially in low-income countries. That's why these best practice cases are so important.

How Much Does It Cost to Save Tropical Forests and Prevent Climate Change?

On May 28, 2019
@IIED shared
RT @nature_brains: research by @EarthInnovate, @UWMadScience + @nature_org shows that, per decade from 2020-2050, tropical reforestation + avoided deforestation together could provide up to 1/3 the mitigation to keep global temp rise below 2°C. #naturalclimatesolutions https://t.co/ftXDqrFnbQ https://t.co/CNrzYKm0GM

New research directly compares, for the first time, how much carbon dioxide could be removed from the atmosphere by both tropical reforestation and deforestation.
