Supporting urban adaptation to climate change: what role can resilience measurement tools play?

Cities are emerging as leading forces for climate change adaptation and resilience, due to their financial, technological and human capacities. Many approaches and tools have been developed and used over the last few decades to measure climate resilience in cities and identify areas that need further intervention. In this study, the authors explore how and to what extent such tools can be or have been utilised by city-level actors to support their decision-making processes for building climate change resilience.
