Synopsis: The rising threat from climate change is one of many factors to be considered in investment and policy making. In many instances, climate impacts magnify existing needs of businesses and local populations, and function as multipliers on their vulnerabilities. Nowhere are such impacts of climate change more noticeable, and faster growing, than in urban areas, given their density of people, infrastructures and economic activity. This presentation illustrates on the basis of several case studies the need for urban climate adaptation and identifies a set of local to global investment and policy strategies to reduce vulnerabilities.
