A regional hub of the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN)
The Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) is a consortium of individuals and institutions dedicated to the analysis of climate change mitigation and adaptation from an urban perspective. UCCRN members are scholars and experts from universities and research organisations, spanning a broad range of disciplines.
The network is designed to enhance cutting-edge scientific, economic, and planning-related research and to promote knowledge sharing among researchers and urban decision-makers as well as other stakeholders about the impacts of climate change on cities. UCCRN’s goal is to lead an on-going, sustained global city-focused assessment and solutions program, to provide cities and regional communities with the knowledge they need to effectively respond to climate change.
The Hub for Australian Cities
The Hub for Australian Cities is an Australian-led platform to promote a co-ordinated climate change response based on knowledge sharing and collaboration between Australian scholars, institutions, city and local government and industry. The Australian hub will enable local initiatives in Australia to inform local initiatives in other countries and vice versa.
The Hub is fundamentally not an institution and does not seek to dominate the field, assert its own individuality or engage in research that excludes participation. Rather, it acknowledges the richness and diversity of Australia’s many researchers and practitioners and seeks to channel the potency of this resource into a systematic response to climate change. Local and specific solutions are recognised as foundational for lasting solutions that respect and enhance the individuality and personality of the landscape, cities and people that comprise our Australian continent.
