Integrating Climate Change into City Development Strategies

The guide is intended to be of particular benefit for
the following groups:
• Planners working in local governments cities in lowand middle-income countries that are developing a City Development Strategy, have some knowledge of climate change and want to integrate this aspect.
• City planners working in local governments who have developed a City Development Strategy and have integrated climate change but want to review or refine the process with specific regards to climate
change aspects.
• City planners working in local governments who have no previous experience in developing a City Development Strategy but who are planning to do so in the future, have basic knowledge of climate
change and are actively seeking ways to integrate this aspect.
 
This guide may also be useful for professionals in the urban development field in cities where local governments lack specific personnel working on town planning.
