ELLA Learning Alliance on Climate Resilient Cities – Discussion 3: Integrating Climate Considerations into Urban Land-Use Planning
- There is currently a lack of city level land-use plans that integrate climate change considerations because cities have other development priorities, and there is a lack of political will.
- There is a general lack of local technical capacity to develop such plans and outsourcing to consultants often results in plans that do not fully consider the local reality.
- Community involvement in land use planning processes can improve local awareness of risks and respect for land use regulations.
