Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Urban Development Planning for Asian Coastal Cities.

REGIONAL (Pan Asia): The proposed activity will strengthen capacity in Asian coastal cities on the part of researchers and representatives from urban planning and development agencies, as well as operational climate and disaster planning agencies to cope with future climate impacts and vulnerabilities to change. This addresses directly the concerns of the SCBCIA that capacity be increased for informed decision-making regarding climate change impacts and vulnerabilities. The workshop would involve teams from selected Asian coastal cities, each team to be made up of a minimum of one university researcher and one or more officials or practitioners from urban planning, development, and hydro-meteorology and disaster management agencies.
