Framing the Future: Exploring Climate Science, Policy, Fiction, and Narrative in the Upcoming Special Report on Cities and Climate Change

The Special Report on Climate Change and Cities is the only special report included in AR7, and a crucial scoping meeting is set to take place in Riga, Latvia on April 16. This meeting will gather scientists, academics, and experts to outline the structure, focus, and framework of the report. Participants will include leading climate scientists and city experts who will utilize a vast amount of knowledge produced by scholars, city networks, and IPCC authors.

The period leading up to the Riga meeting is essential for experts to expand their knowledge, stimulate their creativity, and test the narratives that will shape the report. The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is hosting a special discussion that brings together IPCC authors, climate policy experts, and writers who use fiction and narrative to explore the intersection of science and policy. The discussion will provide an overview of the forthcoming Special Report, showcase readings from the Invisible Cities project, where authors collaborate with the science and policy communities to craft new fictional representations of cities facing climate challenges. Additionally, it will engage in a broader conversation on the impact of narratives on climate action.
