Mainstreaming Climate Adaptation: How to Integrate Climate Adaptation into Current Planning Efforts

An integrated approach to climate adaptation is an increasingly effective way to mainstream adaptation planning within a variety of sector-specific capacities and planning efforts. Cities can embed climate adaptation initiatives within municipal activities, such as hazard mitigation or climate action planning. Not only does an integrated planning approach enable immediate action, but it is also potentially the most efficient and effective way to respond to the cross-sectoral nature of addressing climate change.

In this white paper, authors discuss how integration can be the best way forward when grant opportunities dry up and mandated legislation combined with widely available resources allows mainstreaming to be the best and most viable option for climate adaptation planning.
