A Workshop On Farming The National Challenge Framework On Climate Smart Cities And Air Polluation Mitigation

Friday, 25th January 2019 @ India Habitat Centre, New Delhi

Rapid urbanization is posing a challenge for sustainable development of our cities. Urban areas are
responsible for considerable energy consumption and GHG emissions which attributes to climate
change. It is observed that nearly 44% of India’s rapidly growing carbon emissions have urban origins,
emanating from transport, industry, buildings and waste. This imposes huge risks towards increased
water stress, heat island effect, increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events such as
urban floods. This unprecedent growth is leading to negative consequences for environment and wellbeing of its citizens. Rapidly growing carbon emissions are making our cities vulnerable and imposing
huge risks for environment and human beings.
