With the global urban population now exceeding 50 percent, the inhabitants of cities are recognized as a major driver of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This paper describes the methodology and data used to determine greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions attributable to ten cities or city-regions. Identifying cities with better per capita performance than others may help to guide climate change policies and contribute to SDG 13.3 to improve education, awareness and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation and adaption.
