Although cities consume more than 60 percent of the world’s energy and produce 70 percent of global waste, rapidily developing urban centers with populations of 10 million or more present a new and unique opportunity to understanding the prospects for our planet. Dr. Barry will describe both health benefits and threats to megacities brought about by climate change. She will also report on innovations in areas such as food security and built environments that are being designed and implemented in megacities and other urban areas to create a more resilient and healthy future for all.
