S. Saibabu, Managing DirectorCities - the global centres of communication, commerce, and culture are not only home to more than half the world's population but are the frontlines of the climate crisis. According to UN-Habitat, while cities consume 78 percent of the world's energy and produce more than 60 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, they occupy only two percent of the world's landmass, in terms of size. Nearly all cities face the same challenges of energy waste, water scarcity, dangers of air pollution etc. According to the IPCC report, it would require rapid and far-reaching transitions in using energy, land, urban and infrastructure and industrial systems in limiting global warming to 1.5 degree Celsius. Also, any damage to the environment may result in the disturbance of the entire ecosystem as it is the habitat for every single creature on planet earth. Therefore, environmental clean-up is highly essential and critical to avoid these eco damages.

But the good news is that cities around the globe have started taking measures to reduce these pollutions and are putting policies in place that encourage the use of alternative use of energy resources.
