Megacities in an Era of Climate Change – Living with Extremes


Register for this Event  

Extreme weather events are having immediate and long-lasting effects on the economic activity of megacities such as Karachi, Chennai, and Beijing. At the same time, rapid population growth, migration, and human economic activity at massive scales threatens the environmental health of megacities.

Using the lens of rapid population growth, migration, and human economic activity, this panel will explore the following questions:
**What are the economic and environmental impacts of megacity development on the climate?
**What are the local, national, and international dynamics associated with climate change mitigation in Karachi, Chennai, and Beijing?
**How can states support economic growth while also responding to the dangers of climate change?
