The AWS Sustainable Cities Accelerator Program: Cities occupy just 3% percent of the Earth’s land but account for 75% of carbon emissions. With the urban population expected to grow 1.5X to 6 billion people by 2045, developing sustainable cities is a crucial component of the fight against climate change. — UN Sustainable Development Goals #11
