The future we don't want

 
Done jointly with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy, the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) and Acclimatise, the report predicts how many urban residents will face potentially devastating heat waves, flooding and droughts by 2050 if global warming continues on its current trajectory. The report also looks at indirect climate impacts and estimates how climate change under a ‘business-as-usual scenario’ will impact urban food security and energy systems as well as the urban poor, who are most vulnerable to climate change. Headline findings include that, by 2050
 

  • 1.6 billion people living in over 970 cities, will be regularly exposed to extreme high temperatures.
  • Over 800 million people, living in 570 cities, will be vulnerable to sea level rise and coastal flooding.
  • 650 million people, in over 500 cities, will be at risk of water shortages due to climate change.
  • 2.5 billion people will be living in over 1,600 cities where national food supply is threatened by climate change.
  • The power supply to 470 million people, in over 230 cities, will be vulnerable to sea level rise.
  • 215 million poor urban residents, living in slum areas in over 490 cities, will face increasing climate risks.
