This report presents an initial assessment of local authority climate change adaptation preparations, and identifies ways to increase the number of local authorities addressing climate change. While national government can advance local climate change adaptation through incentives and regulations, adaptation also requires local actions. International good practice examples show that local governments are ideally placed to adapt to climate change.
