ELLA Learning Alliance on Climate Resilient Cities – Discussion 3: Integrating Climate Considerations into Urban Land-Use Planning

Interviews with experts from Montevideo, Uruguay and Cartagena, Colombia provided details of how climate change considerations have been successful integrated into urban land-use planning. Practitioners from Africa, Asia and Latin America discussed how these and other methods might be adopted in their respective cities.

Key Conclusions:

  • 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.
