Making cities sustainable

National governments around the world are neglecting the needs of their major cities with non-existent or inadequate development policies. National governments are crucial to making cities more sustainable, however, only a quarter of the world's governments have urban development policies, and most of those that do exist are not sufficient to make cities sustainable.
For instance, putting in adequate public transport can transform the lives of citizens and the carbon footprint of the cities they live in. Encouraging the use of electric vehicles above petrol can also have a large effect, not just on greenhouse gas emissions but also on removing some of the main causes of air pollution.
Cities around the world are facing rapid population growth and are likely to be among the areas worst hit by the dramatic climate change, in part because many are at risk of rising sea levels, floods and droughts. As well as transport, housing is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, with heating, cooling and other energy and water use. Nonetheless, the report notes, national governments often hold the key but fail to consider the needs of their biggest cities when developing policy.

Adapted from: http://www.theguardian.com
A: National governments are making sustainable only a quarter of the world's cities which have urban development policies.
B: The carbon footprint of the cities can be reduced if citizens use public transport instead of private cars.
C: Electric vehicles can also have a large effect on greenhouse gas emissions if air pollution is removed.
D: Cities with higher population growth are most likely to be devastated by climate change.
E: Housing with heating, cooling and other energy and water waste are all responsible for greenhouse gas emissions.
F: National governments fail when developing policy because they cannot find the key due to the size of the cities.
