Assessing the potentials of digitalization as a tool for climate change adaptation and sustainable development in urban centres
Authors: This publication was prepared in collaboration with ICLEI’s Resource Team for the Sustainable Cities and Society journal, Volume 53.
Digitalization is a key enabler for cities’ sustainable development, with the potential to foster climate-friendly urban environments and societies. While growing research has highlighted the significance of digitalization to climate change mitigation, comprehensive evaluations of its potentials towards adaptation and resilience remain scarce. This paper addresses this gap by analysing the current trend in the digital revolution in relation to climate change adaptation and examines the likely challenges of digitalization.
