Good practice guide: climate change adaptation in delta cities

Source(s):  C40 Cities Secretariat

For cities struggling with torrential rains and flooding, this guide offers a range of approaches - including Copenhagen’s innovative Cloudburst Management Plan - to emulate mayors and urban policymakers roadmaps for tackling climate change, reducing climate risk and encouraging sustainable urban development.

With 100 case studies taken from cities of every size, geography and stage of development around the world, the Good Practice Guides provide tangible examples of climate solutions that other cities can learn from. It focuses on the key elements required to successfully deliver climate change adaptation in delta cities, with a survey of good practice principles leading to better economic, social, and environmental outcomes for cities. These approaches are drawn from the experiences of cities engaged in C40’s Connecting Delta Cities Network and are relevant for coastal river delta cities around the world.
