Climate change adaptation planning in Latin America and Caribbean cities: Cuzco, Peru

Source(s):  ICF International (ICF)

The Climate Change Adaptation Planning in Latin American and Caribbean Cities project is designed to inform policy making and climate change adaptation planning in small and medium-sized cities. The focus is on floods and landslides, which are two of the most common climate-related risks in cities across the Latin America and Caribbean region. This report focuses on the city of Peru, Cuzco.

The planning themes that create the foundation for a climate change adaptation strategy to help Cusco build its resilience against floods and landslides, both now and in the future, are as follows (pp. 84-85):

  • coordinated risk management and planning across all districts of Cusco;
  • capacity building in national and city level government institutions engaged in climate change planning and risk management;
  • mechanisms for data collection, storage and dissemination to be created and/or improved for better climate monitoring, risk planning, and information sharing;
  • improved budgetary resources and climate financing for long-term recovery and building resilience against climate change hazards;
  • cross-scale integration of risk management practices;
  • a shift from disaster management to long term risk reduction and climate change adaptation to ensure a proactive and forward-looking system of risk governance.
