CDKN in Rio: Mainstreaming climate change into sustainable urban planning
In this panel at the IIED Fair Ideas Conference, CDKN will share its experiences of integrating climate change adaptation and mitigation into sustainable urban planning, drawing on lessons from its projects.
We will be exploring the questions:
What do we know about cities’ vulnerability to climate change, and what are the gaps in our knowledge?
What are some of the best ways of cultivating stakeholder understanding and buy-in to the urban resilience agenda?
What type of research, technical assistance, governance innovation and knowledge-sharing would assist municipal decision-makers in building climate resilience?
