摘要:The focus on development of sustainable cities has got top priorities in recent years. This study has been conducted to analyze two main research questions. First is to ascertain that sustainable cities can address the consequences of climate change and improve sustainability. Secondly, sustainable cities can help to enhance the utilization of renewable energy resources. Qualitative method has been adopted for the research with systematic review of the available literature. Data set acquired from reputable online sources were also critically appraised to interpret the relevance with the research questions. The data has been collected to understand core elements of Sustainable Cities Index(SCI) and the international perspective of the subject. Regional statistics in this study details the utilization of fossil fuel and trend of renewables in Pakistan, especially in the port city of Karachi. The research suggested that sustainable cities give way to improved utilization of renewables and enhance appropriate waste management. It leads to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and subsequently creates the counter action to the problems related to climate change. Results further concludes on the answers to research questions that consumption of fossil fuel is directly proportional to the consequences of climate change like greenhouse gas emissions and Urban Heat Island(UHI). A number of recommendations have also been proposed, which may lead to improve sustainability of this metropolitan city and industrial business hub of the country.
