A workshop on assessing alternatives for mitigating and adapting to cumulative climate and global impacts in City Development Strategies and long-range planning to 2050 and beyond: Essential IA processes for planners.

The International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA), organises this in-person workshop as part of the special events associated with the Symposium on Impact Assessment and Climate Change ( 27-28 September 2022) in Cape Town, South Africa.

With a lineup of local, continental and international speakers, the workshop will challenge current thinking and explore how impact assessment practitioners can support urban and regional planners in addressing long-term cumulative climate and global impacts in their City Development Strategies and long-range planning.

This will include looking at the current state of urban development and its resilience to climate change, followed by a series of short presentations and a panel discussion on impact assessment’s role in planning for 2050 and beyond.

The afternoon sessions will be in a World Café format, providing the opportunity for participants to discuss pertinent questions facing city planners and impact assessment professionals.
