Under the WWF initiative One Planet City Challenge, WWF and WMO designed a 3- part webinar series to showcase success stories where local governments use the best available scientific information as a basis for decision making aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks and improving urban air quality.
The city of Paris which is one of the champions in IG3IS implementation showcased the use of atmospheric observations to guide its emission reductions and strides towards carbon neutrality at one of the webinars (Towards carbon neutral cities).
Each webinar showcased success stories in the use of the best available scientific information for decision making processes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve urban air quality. To this end, the webinars included a balanced approach between technical experts, user community, and other potential beneficiaries when possible. The topics to be addressed in the three webinars were:
- Cleaner Air in Cities
- Multi-Hazard Adaptation in Cities
- Carbon Neutral Cities
