Integration of climate change adaptation in territorial planning and sectoral management of Cartagena de Indias

Integration of climate change adaptation in territorial planning and sectoral management of Cartagena de Indias

Cartagena de Indias is one of the cities in Colombia that exhibit high vulnerability to climate change, but, unlike other geographical areas and coastal zones, it has scientific and technical information available to be incorporated into legal, financial and economic mechanisms as part of a local government public policy. Thus, given the growing interest in the implementation of adaptation measures at the local level as risk reduction mechanisms, this document responds to the need to generate methodologies to standardize processes and schemes for planning Cartagena in a manner that is compatible with climate change.
