9 November 2022 – The GPM supports the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Summary for Urban Policymakers. The Summary for Urban Policymakers (SUP) has convened IPCC report authors acting in an independent capacity with local government officials, national governments and business communities through partnerships with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy‘s networks of cities, the Resilience First business network, the Indian Institute for Human Settlements, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) in collaboration with GIZ and led by The Resilience Shift.

The SUP series, announced at the Glasgow COP26 climate conference, distilling international climate change science for the urban context, is authored by a group of these same scientists in collaboration with cities and businesses in every region around the globe.

In the past year, city officials, national government representatives and business leaders have had the opportunity to engage with the AR6 SUP authors, operating in an independent capacity, to explore additional opportunities for collaboration and co-creation – filling gaps in the available city-scale science and advancing solutions at scale across multiple geographies, using the SUP series as the evidence base for action.

The SUP series will be presented at COP 27 in Sharm El Sheikh, on November 11, 18.30 hrs EET.
