The International Conference on Urban Climate, which takes place every three years and was organized for the 10th time, provides a focused platform for scientists from around the globe. This year ‘s conference theme was Sustainable and Resilient Urban Environments. The conference comes at a time when accelerated urban development is challenged by the risks and consequences of extreme weather and climate events and global socio-economic disparity. Resiliency and reduced vulnerability to all socio-economic sectors have become critical elements to achieve sustainable development: the conference will be the premier forum for these discussions.
