Cities and Climate Change: Making the Links | Sara Hughes | TEDxUofT

Sara’s work examines the choices city governments make about climate change, water resources, and waste management, the political and economic factors that shape those choices, and how alternative strategies can gain traction in the complex realm of urban politics.
What are the impacts of large urban environments on the global economy, and the local environment?

Sara Hughes identifies policies and strategies cities can use to become more sustainable. She is an assistant professor in the political science department at the University of Toronto, where she teaches urban politics and policy making.
She has worked in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, India, and Australia and holds a PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
