WWF-WMO Webinar series

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CLEANER AIR IN CITIES

 

With expert speakers:

 

Beatríz Cárdenas, Air Quality Manager, WRI

Michel Grutter de la Mora, Researcher, Center for Atmospheric Sciences – UNAM

 

Presented by:

- Tabaré A. Currás, Technical Lead, WWF Cities

 

 

Air pollution represents a serious environmental problem causing premature deaths and negative impacts on ecosystems. Providing observational evidence of pollution levels and forecasts for acute air pollution episodes has been shown to reduce the number of premature deaths in urban areas.

During this webinar you will gain knowledge on how air pollution is formed, and what role meteorological processes play in further deterioration of air quality. You will also be introduced to tools that are used for reducing the impacts of air pollution and how they can aid you in your work. 

 

Date: Monday, May 4th, 2020

 

Time: 16:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time)

 

The recording is available here.

MULTI-HAZARD ADAPTATION IN CITIES

 

With expert speakers:

 

Tsz-cheung Lee, Senior Scientific Officer, Hong Kong Observatory, Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region

Ir Maxwell SW MAK, Engineer of Land Drainage, Division of the Drainage Services Department, Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region

 

 

Presented by:

- Tabaré A. Currás, Technical Lead, WWF Cities

 

 

Flash floods, a climate-driven phenomenon, is the most dangerous type of flooding, killing more than 5,000 people each year. Forecasting weather conditions accurately and producing early warnings can allow better responses and save lives.

During this webinar, you will gain knowledge on how technology can help cities anticipate climate hazards such as flash floods and be ready when these events hit.

CARBON NEUTRAL CITIES

 

With expert speakers:

Yann Francoise, Head of Climate, Energy and Circular Economy Strategies, Urban Ecology Agency, City of Paris.

Thomas Lauvaux, Research Scientist, Environment and Climate Sciences Laboratory (LSCE).

 

Presented by:

- Tabaré A. Currás, Technical Lead, WWF Cities

 

 

Our ability to measure GHG emissions in cities gives us a better understanding of the critical problem of climate change in urban environments. High-resolution monitoring of the atmosphere, combined with modelling, enables local governments to more accurately size GHG emissions, thereby providing reliable information upon which to make informed decisions in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

During this webinar you will gain knowledge on how atmospheric observations can support mitigation actions on the path towards carbon neutral cities.
