GLRPPR Sector Resource: Lessons Learned on Local Climate Adaptation from the Urban Leaders Adaptation Initiative

Title:
Lessons Learned on Local Climate Adaptation from the Urban Leaders Adaptation Initiative

Abstract:
This report summarizes the main findings of CCAP's Urban Leaders Adaptation Initiative. This partnership with local government leaders served to empower local communities to develop and implement climate-resilient strategies. The report concludes that effective approaches include comprehensive planning, using "no-regrets" strategies, and "mainstreaming" adaptation efforts into existing policies. In addition, the report finds that examining and communicating the multiple benefits of adaptation strategies can be especially useful for developing public support for initiatives.
