Climate change bears many challenges for our cities. The ability to develop local solutions and strategies is therefore key to adapt cities to the impacts of climate change and develop resilience.
The latest publication of MGI Climate Risk and Resilience in the Global Context. Insights from the Morgenstadt Global Smart Cities Initiative gives guidance on how policy makers, scholars, practitioners, and citizens can develop locally tailored solutions and adaptation strategies based on an assessment of risks and vulnerabilities in the context of climate change.
With best practices examples from the MGI pilot cities (Piura, Kochi, Saltillo), the report introduces a replicable methodology to better understand climate-related risks and vulnerabilities and increase resilience to the respective impact. Also, it provides insights into various projects in middle- and low-income countries which have sought to integrate the objectives of the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030 when tackling climate change issues.
