Guidebook on planning for global warming soon to be available

Local government leaders will soon have a new tool to help them plan for the impacts of global warming, as peer review is about to begin on ‘Setting the Course: A Guidebook on Planning for Global Warming’.




The publication will be a framework that communities can use to prepare for and adapt to regional climate changes. The guidebook will become part of ICLEI’s Climate Resilient Communities program, which enables communities to integrate climate preparedness strategies into existing hazard mitigation plans, reduce the costs associated with disaster relief, and prioritize vulnerabilities such as infrastructure, zoning and water capacity.




The ICLEI website will inform readers when the Guidebook becomes available.
