As announced at the 12th Annual Green Building Convention in October, GBCSA and Divercity have initiated a long-term research partnership to further information and knowledge within the built environment sector to aid decision makers in developing more sustainable cities in South Africa.
The way in which cities develop in the future will have a significant impact on the integrity of urban ecosystems and global efforts in climate change mitigation and adaptation. The IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C of Global Warming recognises cities as a critical global system to “accelerate and upscale climate action.” and delivering a 1.5°C future.
The first GBCSA and Divercity research report aims to quantitatively evaluate the impacts of development location within the urban form on carbon emissions in Johannesburg.
