Climate change adaptation by design - a guide for sustainable communities

Description:

This report shows how adaptation can be integrated into the planning, design and development of new and existing communities in the United Kingdom. It is a resource for planners, urban designers, developers, and those engaged more generally in creating sustainable communities. Drawing on research just published as part of the Building Knowledge for a Changing Climate programme, the guide considers how adaptation options are influenced by geographical location and the scale of development. It considers the interrelated roles of the planning system, communities, other stakeholders and delivery bodies. It seeks to ensure a better understanding of climate risks while demonstrating effective adaptation strategies through case studies from around the world.
