How Smart Cities can help to fight climate crisis

Research Paper by Begoña Garteizaurrecoa Azua




Today, cities consume approximately the 75% of world's energy and generate almost the 70% of the CO2 global emissions. Public Administrations cannot face the fight against climate change alone and the cause needs the involvement of all the different stakeholders: political stakeholders, Administrations, companies and citizens. Although every citizen on the globe must fight climate change individually, it is important to foster joint actions and policies from the main decision centres.
