Nature-Based Solutions for Building Resilience in Towns and Cities

Case Studies from the Greater Mekong Subregion

Asian Development Bank (author)

ISBN: 9789292576578

Publication Date: Dec 2016

Format: Paperback

Urban populations are projected to increase from 54% to 66% of the global population by 2050, with close to 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. Cities and towns–a growing source of greenhouse gas emissions–will need to address challenges posed by climate change. A nature-based approach in identifying climate change vulnerabilities and developing relevant adaptation options was conducted in three towns of the Greater Mekong Subregion. Working with local governments, nongovernment organizations, women's groups, and professional associations, town-wide adaptation measures were defined by overlaying climatechange projections on town plans and zoning schemes for strategic infrastructure. This publication captures valuable experience and lessons from the project.
