Microsoft founder Bill Gates highlights the vulnerability of the world’s 4.4 billion city dwellers in the face of climate change in his new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need.”
He urges cities and governments to use increased knowledge, data, and technology to support urban transformation and adaptation in the face of this threat.
Companies such as Cityzenith can help. Cityzenith offers software to make digital twin models to help predict and map the impacts of climate change. The company will donate its SmartWorldPro Digital Twin software to 10 major cities dedicated to tackling climate change.
