Urban climate adaptation and leadership


 This report presents a synthesis of key points and views raised in a series of focused discussions among “adaptation leaders” from fourteen cities around the world. These “adaptation leaders” explored motivations and enabling conditions for initiating and sustaining adaptation, dealing with scientific uncertainty in their planning and implementation, ways of engaging different government departments and stakeholder groups, planning processes they follow, and the resources they need to advance adaptation. The findings are therefore relevant to city leaders who wish to understand the scope for acting to address climate change, local and national policy-makers who intend to support or facilitate this process, and international organizations that work with cities on issues of adaptation and resilience.
