We invite you to contribute to the state of research on cities, climate action and inequalities in Quebec.

With the support of the vast network of researchers in urban studies at Villes Régions Monde network and the expertise of the Canada Research Chair in Urban Climate Action, this state of research aims to gather and disseminate social science and urban studies research that can contribute to knowledge on climate action in cities and urban regions and on the inequalities that result from it, whether or not this research has raised the issue of climate at the beginning of its process.

In the first phase, this state of research will bring together research on Quebec and focus on cities, local communities and living environments. Each compiled research will gain visibility and will be able to feed global knowledge on climate action. The syntheses will be published on the VRM website, compiled by theme and will be used to produce a meta-analysis of research in Quebec on these issues, with a view to contributing to future IPCC work at the urban level.

We particularly welcome contributions that address unequal opportunities to participate and influence public decisions, new inequalities possibly associated with climate action, processes of racialization, exclusion, discrimination, colonialism to be considered in climate action and transition.
