    Abstract The Earth is undergoing climate change, and cities are challenged by climate-related disasters. After progressive efforts of debating facts, reasons, and responders to climate change, the world enters an era of actually implementing climate change mitigation and adaptation. However, there are still many uncertainties. First, climate change is accelerating and climate-related disasters are more frequent, severe, and intense than ever before. Second, the complicated linkages between climate change and a series of environmental sustainability demands make decision makers difficult to decouple them. To overcome this mega challenge, the 2nd International Conference on Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability was held to widely collect experience and lessons tailoring to different contexts, in order to better promote the transformation towards climate change mitigation and adaptation implementation. A total of 14 conference papers were accepted for publication. The book contains four parts including “Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation”, “Climate-related Governance and Challenges”, “Decarbonization of Built Environment”, and “Sustainable Urban–Rural Planning and Design”. The contents in this book are expected to provide pathways to climate change mitigation and adaptation, whilst highlighting environmental resilience.
