What will I learn?
How do we analyse low-carbon and climate resilient urban development options and how we strategically decide which ones to include in climate action plans? What opportunities and challenges do cities face in relation to mainstreaming climate change policies and actions into existing plans? Cities play an essential role in adapting to climate change. They are increasingly expected to undertake actions to adapt to sea level rise, floods, droughts, and other natural disasters exacerbated by climate change and climate variability. Mapping the most at risk areas of a city with relevant stakeholders is fundamental to understanding how to reduce a city’s vulnerability. Cities are also expected to follow a low-carbon development path, which cuts across sectors and planning practices.
