DESCRIPTION

[PP-LRA-07]

Climate change is manifesting through many water-related shifts, and cities must be prepared and able to act. The session will look into how local governments can actively plan out risk and build in resilience, with particular attention to water-related hazards, through tested tools and approaches. It will explore how intensified and changing natural hazards mean and how local governments can look beyond traditional risks and take action to prepare for sudden shocks and progressive stresses.
