The Summary for Urban Policymakers (SUP) initiative provides a distillation of the IPCC reports into accessible and targeted summaries that can help inform action at city and regional scales. This is a collection of the three volumes of the SUP series combined together. Volume I in the series, What the Latest Physical Science of Climate Change Means for Cities and Urban Areas, focuses on the ways in which human-induced climate change is affecting every region of the world, and the cities and urban areas therein. Volume II, What the Latest Science on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability Means for Cities and Urban Areas, assesses the feasibility and effectiveness of different adaptation options for cities and urban areas in addition to emphasizing the impacts of the changing climate. This third volume in the series, What the Latest Science on Climate Change Mitigation Means for Cities and Urban Areas details out how aggressive and ambitious policies for transition towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions can be implemented in cities and urban areas, while contributing to sustainable development.
