Panel Climate Change and the City of Rio de Janeiro

Climate change is impacting cities in many ways. This theme is very little explored in people's daily lives, although it is extremely relevant in the present and in the future. Cities around the world are adapting to become more resilient, sustainable and provide quality of life and well-being for its inhabitants, with economic development based on a green economy and innovative technologies. How is Rio de Janeiro really preparing? What would be the best solutions to the challenges, such as increasing and frequent climate events, rising urban temperatures, impacts on the health of residents, rising sea levels, and many others? To present the state of the art and answer these questions, the panel brings together researchers who are part of the Urban Climate Change Resarch Network (UCCRN) and a representative of the city of Rio de Janeiro.
