Integrating Climate Change into City Development Strategies


This guidebook on integrating climate change into city development strategies (CDS) attempts to provide input into the effort of unifying two key thematic areas, Climate Change and City Development Strategies. This attempt of climate proofing city development strategies is an ongoing process and requires additional effort by governments, academia, and city development partners worldwide.

The guidebook is an output of the Cities Alliance Joint Work Programme on Cities and Climate change, which brings together the World Bank, UN-Habitat and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to help cities address challenges related to climate change, aiming to facilitate a coordinated, focused effort targeting cities and climate change.
