Can Cities Reduce Global Warming?: Urban Development and the Carbon Cycle in Latin America

This research report is a first step of a long-time effort aimed at establishing a well-coordinated set of case studies on urban development and the carbon cycle in the Americas. A two-fold purpose lies behind this endeavor. The authors intend firstly to further develop two research priorities identified by the Global Carbon Project (GCP): understanding the consequences of different pathways of urban development on the carbon cycle, and identifying points of management and intervention aimed at designing less-carbon intensive development pathways. The authors seek secondly to integrate those studies with the ones underway within other programs and institutional umbrellas.
