Climate-Resilient Cities : A Primer on Reducing Vulnerabilities to Disasters is prepared as a guide for local governments in the East Asia Region to better understand the concepts and consequences of climate change ; how climate change consequences contribute to urban vulnerabilities ; and what is being done by city governments in East Asia and around the world to actively engage in learning, capacity building, and capital investment programs for building sustainable, resilient communities. The Primer is applicable to a range of cities—from those starting to build awareness on climate change to those with climate change strategies and institutions already in place.
