On 22 September, the Coalition for Urban Transitions Global Report 2019 entitled „Climate Emergency, Urban Opportunity: How national governments can achieve shared prosperity and tackle climate change through transforming cities“ was presented in New York, just in time for the SDG Summit.
DIE is one of the institutions supporting the report and Tilman Altenburg is one of its co-authors. The Coalition for Urban Transitions is the most important initiative to support national governments in securing economic prosperity and combating the climate crisis by transforming cities. The report quantifies the social, political and economic benefits of decarbonising cities. It provides new data analysis and informative case studies.
