Wednesday, June 24, 2020

A lecturer at Waterloo Engineering is featured in an international video lecture series created by a United Nations organization dedicated to building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities.

Nadine Ibrahim, who holds the Turkstra Chair in Urban Engineering at Waterloo, kicks off the sixth season of Global Urban Lectures presented by UN-Habitat as the first of 10 lecturers.

Her 15-minute presentation, Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Global Cities, covers the ways emissions are accounted for at the city level and observes differences in methodologies.

Lectures in the series have had over 170,000 views by people in 65 countries since it was launched six years ago.

UN-Habitat bills the latest lectures as quick, efficient online learning tools for local government officials, students, academics and urban professionals at a time live events are cancelled due to COVID-19.
