This knowledge product is part of a collaborative effort under the “Implementing Paris and SDG11 in Global South Cities: the case for urban resilience and adaptation to climate change” project. The report’s main aim is to give voice to cities and regions in the 2018 national stocktaking exercises on climate change and sustainable development and provide valuable insights into climate resilience efforts of cities, particularly in the Global South. The messaging from this initial stocktake intends to enhance the understanding of planning, implementing, measuring, and reporting on climate change adaptation for local and regional governments and spur a second-generation stocktaking in 2019 and beyond.
