Submitted by cstrashok on 13 September 2010

ICLEI has released their Changing Climate, Changing Communities: Guide and Workbook for Municipal Climate Adaptation.

This guide and workbook is a compendium of resources that provides a five-milestone framework to assist local governments with the creation of an adaptation plan to address the relevant climate change impacts in their community and is made up of three distinct elements:

  1. The main guide which includes the methodology and description of the planning process;
  2. A collection of 17 worksheets for realizing the methodology; and
  3. Information annexes, containing over 75 annotated resource checklists that offer a summary of the resource, who it is most applicable to, how it can be used, and access information.

Visit ICLEI to get more information on the guide.
