This issue addresses the increased exposure of cities with population sizes of less than one million in the Latin America and Caribbean region to floods and landslides due to rapid urbanization. It presents a regional initiative piloted by the World Bank’s Latin America and Caribbean Disaster Risk and Urban Development team to equip municipal governments with decision-making tools and capacity building that are needed to integrate climate change adaptation into urban development planning for small and medium-sized cities.
