Shanghai Forum on Climate Change and Cities 2016 (SFCCC 2016), East China Normal University, Shanghai, 19-20th August 2016.
From hurricane Sandy in New York to mega floods in Cities of China, the changing climate has influenced urban sustainability and quality of life in different parts of the world. This need a renewed science focus on climate change and cities. Owing to this, East China Normal University and Columbia University will co-organize a forum on it. We also plan to set up the East Asian hub for Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) during the forum and produce a report on the proceedings of climate change and cities. The Forum will highlight the width and scope of ongoing climate change and disaster risk reduction research, strengthen the highly interdisciplinary urban geography community, inspire new research and facilitate review, theory building and extrapolation, and support decision making and co-production of knowledge.
The Shanghai forum will focus on climate change in New York, Shanghai and other world cities, and covers the following main themes:
¬ Climate change risks in cities
¬ Impacts of climate change on cities
¬ Adaptation and resilience to urban disasters

 

 

Schedule of the Forum
Thursday August 18: Arrival and registration
Friday August 19: Presentations and ceremony for setting up Shanghai Hub for UCCRN and SPCC (full day)
Saturday August 20: field trip to places include Yangshan deep water port, Huangpu River, and Shanghai city planning exhibition center.
