Knowing exactly the amount of fossil fuel  emissions that comes from urban areas is essential to track the progress carbon mitigation plans.

That's why researchers from GNS Science have been  investigating the best  ways to measure these emissions in cities like Indianapolis, Paris, Boston, Melbourne, Washington DC and Auckland.

Dr Jocelyn Turnbull from GNS Science explains how getting consistent and accurate readings will help individual cities work out how well they're fighting climate change.
