Call of interest: Urban Management Tools for Climate Change

By on February 20, 2018

Short course. Urban Management Tools for Climate Change

How do we analyse low-carbon and climate resilient urban development options and how
we strategically decide which ones to include in climate action plans? What opportunities and challenges do cities have in relation to mainstreaming climate change policies and actions into existing plans?

Cities play an essential role in adapting to climate change. They are increasingly expected to undertake actions to adapt to sea level rise, floods, droughts and other natural disasters exacerbated by climate change and climate variability. Mapping the most at risk areas of a city with relevant stakeholders is fundamental in understanding how to reduce a city’s vulnerability.

What will I learn?

Participants will acquire knowledge and skills on how to perform vulnerability assessments of cities and will be introduced to specific tools and adaptation actions that deal with climate change and climate variability.

The course is offered in collaboration with UN-Habitat.
