Cities are heating up at twice the rate of global average warming due to the urban heat island effect and rapid urbanization. With more cities facing record high temperatures and heatwaves increasing in number, it is important that we set an agenda to take collective action now making sure to keep the most vulnerable populations central to any solution. The eight Cities on the Frontline session of 2022, “Urban Heat: Cities Taking Action”, focused on the increasingly important role of heat in cities and how cities are affected by its multiple effects giving our audience an understanding how this phenomenon presents itself in different geographies around the world as well as the actions that can be taken to mitigate its effects.
