The majority of the population of the planet now live in urban areas, which have divergent effects upon climate at measures from the local to the global. This book examines the nature of urban climate expertise and the needs of those that make decisions about urban areas. It makes recommendations to maintain and enhance urban observations and data; to improve understanding of local, regional and global climate linkages; to develop tools for practical planning; and to disseminate urban climate knowledge and its relevance to urban planning to both practicing meteorologists and urban decision makers.
