Climate Impacts and Adaptation in Asian Cities

The World Bank has released a new report entitled Climate Resilient Cities: A Primer on Reducing Vulnerabilities to Climate Change Impacts and Strengthening Disaster Risk Management in East Asian Cities. According to the Executive Summary, the report has been prepared,

as a guide for local governments in the East Asia Region to better
understand the concepts and consequences of climate change; how climate change
consequences contribute to urban vulnerabilities; and what is being done by city
governments in East Asia and around the world to actively engage in learning,
capacity building, and capital investment programs for building sustainable,
resilient communities.
