A systems approach to meeting the challenges of urban climate change

Jo da Silva, Sam Kernaghan, Andrés Luque
2012 International Journal of Urban Sustainable Development  
characteristics be used to analyse urban systems, in parallel with spatial analysis, to target action at multiple levels to reduce exposure and improve the adaptive capacity of urban populations simultaneously  ...  This suggests that action to reduce exposure and improve the adaptive capacity of urban populations must therefore simultaneously address disaster risk reduction, urban poverty reduction and urban resilience  ...  This article grew out of the challenges that each city faces in attempting to build resilience to climate change and the search for conceptual clarity and practical responses. Notes  ...
