Addressing Climate change in National Urban Policy

Description:

How to address climate change in cities and human settlements represents one of the most pressing challenges facing urban policy-makers today. This Guide recommends how to mainstream such considerations into National Urban Policy, thus helping to empower national governments, local governments, and other stakeholders to effectively address climate change. Altogether 16 recommendations are given encompassing climate change mitigation, adaptation and urban climate governance and how they can be applied in the national urban policy process. In addition numerous policy excerpts are included as examples on how various countries in Europe and globally have tackled this issue in their national urban policies.
