SCIENTIFIC ARTICLE: Adaptation planning in large cities is unlikely to be effective

You may remember that in the project CLIC we revised local policies in the largest 136 coastal port cities worldiwide. We found that only 59 cities out of 136 (43%) had adaptation policies in place. In this new study (Olazabal, M., Ruiz De Gopegui, M., 2021. Adaptation planning in large cities is unlikely to be effective. Landscape and Urban Planning 206, 103974. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.landurbplan.2020.103974) we analyse these adaptation policy processes in detail.

Our findings? We conclude that adaptation planning in large cities is unlikely to be effective unless greater effort is invested in financing, regulatory context, monitoring and evaluation, and legitimacy aspects.

We identify a set of good and bad practises worldwide and find that adaptation models can be found in every local effort.
