Integrating Adaptation into Local Development Processes
Abstract:This chapter identifies elements for successful integration of climate change adaptation at the local level, which include: broad and sustained engagement and participation with local stakeholders; awareness‐raising and targeted messaging on climate change; gathering and using appropriate information; and reconciling time horizons. It looks at the four entry points: (i) development planning processes by local governments; (ii) adjusting local regulatory and service provision frameworks; (iii) adjustment of accountability mechanisms; and (iv) private sector and civil society processes.
