|Publication Date:||1 June 2016|
This Recommendation identifies the impacts of climate change in cities and explains why cities need to adapt to its harmful effects. The roles ICTs can play in helping cities to adapt to climate change are presented. An ICT-based framework for climate change adaptation is included to assist policy makers in developing effective adaptation strategies and building resilient cities. Key stakeholders involved in urban climate change adaptation strategies are identified. A checklist is included to assess the integration of ICTs into an urban climate change adaptation plan, and to identify aspects that could be strengthened in local adaptation planning and response.
