  Information - ERE9 The Role of Cities and Urbanisation in the Greenhouse Gases' emissions

Event Information
This session is designed to investigate how cities, and more broadly urbanisation processes, influence the Global Carbon Cycle (GCC). There is a clear influence of urban areas on the GCC associated with anthropogenic emissions of Greenhouse Gases (especially CO2), that are strongly affected by political and economic decisions made at national and international levels. Important existing research on the topic will be presented in this session and also further discussed, which kind of future developments and data assembling are necessary in order to deal with urbanisation, i.e. monitoring and modelling its impact on the GCC, under different scenarios.
The emphasis will be given to interdisciplinary approaches, considering the problem from various points of view, namely from global and local spatial perspectives, and long- and short-term temporal scales.
