Abstract

The IPCC Working Group I Fourth Assessment Report found that since pre-industrial times until 2005, Land Use and Land Cover Change (LULCC) led to an increase in Earth´s albedo mainly due to the deforestation and the modification of land for agricultural use. However, urban LULCC is also an important driver for global and local climate warming, driven by ongoing rapid urbanisation. Here we investigate
how much cities in different geographic regions across Europe can contribute to climate change mitigation by increasing urban albedo.
