Abstract: The challenges that climate change poses for cities is leading many urban areas—large and small—to work to reduce their own carbon footprints. These measures are often aimed at decarbonizing buildings, making transportation sustainable, and converting the local power grid to renewable energy. Making sure that all climate-related decisions keep social equity and inclusion in mind is another key goal.
