The Climate Change Adaptation Planning in Latin American and Caribbean Cities project is designed to inform policy making and climate change adaptation planning in small and medium-sized cities. The focus is on floods and landslides, which are two of the most common climate-related risks in cities across the Latin America and Caribbean region. Five cities were selected for involvement: Castries, Saint Lucia; Cusco, Peru; El Progreso, Honduras; Esteli, Nicaragua and Santos, Brazil. For each city, five main activities were carried out:

  • A climate-related hazard assessment focused on floods and landslides
  • An urban, social and economic adaptive capacity assessment
  • An institutional adaptive capacity assessment
  • A climate-related vulnerability assessment; and Based on the findings of the four assessments, a combined strategic climate adaptation

institutional strengthening and investment plan, intended to complement and be integrated into existing urban, environmental and disaster risk reduction planning instruments for each city.
