This manual aims to provide mayors and municipal practitioners in developing countries with practical insights on climate change adaptation. In particular, it seeks to address climate change adaptation with an additional discussion of challenges facing informal settlements, the urban poor, and other vulnerable groups. It stresses that when considered in light of various challenges and ongoing activities, climate change can be an opportunity for positive change and action in cities, rather than a competing priority for scarce resources.
