Τhe Edmonton Declaration – a bold call-to-action for cities of all sizes to seriously consider the role of scientific research and data in building ambitious climate action plans. The Declaration, first presented in March in Edmonton, Canada, and further developed throughout the year, brings together policymakers, scientists, businesses and city networks to create a critical new dialogue between these vital groups of climate change stakeholders. It calls upon the scientific, technology and innovation community to work collaboratively with cities and city organisations. Together, we have to improve current knowledge and data gaps and develop innovative solutions that help cities meet ambitious climate targets, in line with the goals of the Paris agreement.
