CIVIS July 2009: Climate Change: What does this mean for your city?
The CIVIS notes series shares knowledge and learning arising from Cities Alliance projects and other activities in slum upgrading and city development strategies. It also serves as a platform for policy dialogue and debate among city development stakeholders, including national and local governments, donors and slum dwellers to impact change in the lives of the urban poor and advance the urban development agenda.
In July 2009, the Cities Alliance launched a four-issue CIVIS series on climate change prepared by the Human Settlements Group at the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).
Issue 1 in the series is titled "Climate Change: What does this mean for your city?" It explores what climate change will bring to cities, who is most at risk and what each city government can do.
