Progress and challenges in urban climate adaptation planning: results of a global survey

Source(s):  ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability
Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT)

This document presents the results of a global survey conducted by MIT in collaboration with ICLEI to gain insight into global patterns of urban climate adaptation planning. The summary of results presented in this report describes the strides ICLEI members have made with adaptation planning, challenges they are encountering, and resources and support they need in order to be prepared for climate impacts. The survey questionnaire consisted of 40 questions divided into six sections: (1) experience of changing weather and precipitation patterns; (2) risk and vulnerability assessment; (3) planning activities; (4) support for and influences on planning; (5) challenges and benefits; and (6) location characteristics.
