Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools.
