Global Ranking of Top 10 Resilient Cities

Global Ranking of Top 10 Resilient Cities

The most populated city in this ranking, Tokyo also is amongst the most dense and has the most used transit system of any city in the world. Tokyo is of course the only Asian city which made the top 10 this year. Tokyo met a key screen (political commitment) by being members of the C40 and ICLEI while also having a published climate action plan . Tokyo, like all cities, still has plenty to work on including an apparent lack of a climate adaptation plan-CAP (or meaningful inclusion within the climate action plan), grow its focus on renewables and increase its green spaces as pat of an adaptation initiative. However, I am keen on their focus on private sector innovation and profitable solutions to mitigate climate change. For example in their CAP, the first initiative is: “Promote Private Enterprises’ Efforts to Achieve CO2 Reductions”.
