The network is a valuable resource for researchers, individual cities, coalitions of Mayors, and organizations focused on providing technical assistance to cities.. The goals of UCCRN include:.. Develop a shared research agenda on urban climate change issues with stakeholders.. Facilitate research collaborations within and across cities/metropolitan areas.. Enhance cutting-edge scientific, economic and planning-related research.. Promote knowledge sharing among resarchers, urban decision-makers and stakeholders.. Exchange lessons learned across cities.. Assess and report on on-going mitigation and adaptation research and practice in major cities.. UCCRN activities include:.. Knowledge-sharing and information exchange: The Network operates a user-friendly website that links to test-bed mitigation and adaptation programs, present research conducted by network members, and post reviews/commentary on key issues in urban climate change policy.. Increasing awareness of urban climate change issues: The Network will raise  ...   research paper competition for undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students..
