  • Why is AECOM a partner of CDPWe also believe in Bloomberg’s adage, “In God we trust, everyone else bring data” We help cities solve the challenges facing them in relation to climate changeIt fits our global, urban, regeneration agenda and expertise It is important to understand how cities are viewing the risks that they face from climate change2013 is second year of our three year partnership
  • Huge and rich data set – information on the list of things on the slide from 110 cities – lots of free text comment as well as figuresProvide data and information to help cities work with their residents and businesses to create better placesBetter prepared to ensure wealth and health Encourage more action from citiesHelp us all become better informed about the problems we are trying to solve for cities
  • In 2011 there was a summary report, in 2012 there was a summary report and website and this year there are 2 reports and a website! Summary report – mainly graphics… focus on risks and adaptation, emissions reduction and measurement and waterThematic report – covers economic and health benefits resulting from climate action Infographic – goes into more detail on all of them, including examples from different participating cities
  • Shows spread of cities that reported (30 from Europe, 27 from NA, 23 from latinamerica, 12 Africa, 11 East Asia, 7 south asia and ANZ).
  • Shows spread of cities that reported (30 from Europe, 27 from NA, 23 from latinamerica, 12 Africa, 11 East Asia, 7 south asia and ANZ).
  • Some summary statistics from the summary report - Sobering message to start with – many cities are reporting risks from variable climate impacts….
  • But the most important message about this is that those cities are reporting those risk right now – in 2013 – not something that they are worried about for their grandchildren.
  • Fortunately many cities are already thinking about planning their resilience to those climate risks. Some of these are at an agency level and some are citywide.
  • Examples of heatwave related adaptationsDenver: Mil High Million tree initiative to cumulatively plant 1 million trees through Metro Denver by 2025. We are currently about 20% of the way there. Denver recently completed a tree canopy study that will in part help to guide future strategies to mitigate the urban heat island effect. Will take at least a decade to start providing benefits from shading. Drought tolerant species are being evaluated in our tree planting guidance documents.
  • Examples of rainfrall adaptations
  • Key message is that climate action (both mitigation and adaptation) are providing conditions to make them more attractive to businesses and making the city more economically vibrant. This is making cities wealthier message
  • Infact 98 of the 110 cities are reporting that climate change is an economic opportunity
  • Examples of the opportunities reported. Under new business – lots of ICT, clean fuels, renewable energy, major water infrastructure projects
  • My favorite graphic!
  • Second big message is the relationship between climate action and health – a major co benefit of many climate mitigation and adaptation strategies is to make cities healthier places to live and their citizens therefore healthier too.
  • Many transportation related policies are providing alternative to the single occupancy car – including better access to transit, bicycling and walking – all of which can promote health.Other biking initiatives:Chicago has 500 new bike racks, 111 miles new bike lanes, bike share pilotHouston – 300 miles bike lanes and bike shareKaoshing – 600km bike lanes bike share Vancouver, bike shareSydney 110km out of 200km planned bike lanesDenver – bike programBA – 100km of protected bike lanesMexico - Ecobici – 275 stations, 4000 bikes and 73000 users a day
  • Many transportation related policies are providing alternative to the single occupancy car – including better access to transit, bicycling and walking – all of which can health.Chicago – transit time available by cellHouston – light rail expansion from 7.5 miles to 39 milesKaohsuing – shuttles to metro and new light rail sysetmToronto, vancouver, dublin, many others – improving transitStockholm – priority bus lanes, removing public car parking spacesAmsterdam – improving bus lanesDenver – new light rail and commuter trains – 3.5 million fewer VMTBA 0 dedicate bus and taxi lanesHK – public transit improvementsMiami – trolley systemPortalnd – 2 miles of new side walks Changwon – bus information system at 91 bus stations
  • Many land use related policies are also about facilitating people to be able to walk and bike for daily tasks, creating more greenspace for recreation etc.C
  • Other cities reporting ecodistricts:Melbourne, TokoyoStockholm, Amsterdam, Paris, Oslo, Barcelona, Cleveland, Portland, Montreal
