Responding to the need for increased urban resilience and adaptation planning, the Urban Adaptation Assessment project, funded by the Kresge Foundation and led by the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Initiative (ND-GAIN), provides an adaptation measurement solution that can be scaled around the world to identify key climate risks and adaptation options for cities. This work aims to advance the knowledge of adaptation by  exploring the connection between adaptive capacities, social inequities, and the impacts of climate disasters.The indicator list provides a set of indicators for assessing the urban climate risks and readiness components. The report equally addresses, the local level climate change adaptation and mitigaiton, including the current state of urban adaptation in all regions of the world; and highlights the role of cities and city networks in driving adaptation effort globally.
