Daring Cities, hosted by ICLEI and the Federal City of Bonn, is a global forum on climate change for urban leaders taking on the climate emergency. CDKN will be co-hosting a session during the Virtual Forum. Find out more and register below.

Daring Cities 2023 is designed to empower urban decision-makers – such as mayors, city councilors, administrators and urban thought leaders, as well as national government representatives, researchers, technical staff, business leaders, civil society decision-makers and community organisers – to lead in the climate emergency, with a focus on how to ensure the climate emergency response also supports the just transition. This year’s edition will continue to provide a platform to convene representatives of all levels of government to strategise and commit to multi-level, whole-of-society climate action that addresses the climate emergency while further developing sustainable and resilient urban systems.

Daring Cities Virtual Forum

Following on from the Daring Cities 2023 Dialogues in June, the Virtual Forum will provide a free, globally accessible program of solution-oriented sessions on regionally and sectorally relevant issues related to just transition and the climate emergency.

Session speakers: Mairi Dupar - CDKN/Overseas Development Institute (ODI), Maniram Banjade - South Asia Institute of Advanced Studies (SIAS) and Karnika Yadav - Intellecap Advisory Services Private Limited

The session will highlight the diversity and gender intersectionality of climate impacts and explore the intrinsic linkages between gender-responsive climate action and a just transition. It will focus on the need for, barriers to, and strategies for achieving more socially-inclusive climate resilience. The session will provide innovative practical solutions for improving understanding of social inclusion, equip local governments with practical tools to incorporate social inclusion in climate resilience planning and present good practice case stories on gender and social inclusion.
