In this course, you will learn the basics for developing economically viable climate-resilient plans. The course starts with a review of the scientific consensus on changes in climate patterns and projections to the future, and explains the rationale for countries to develop climate-resilient plans that will help them to move away from a business-as-usual development path.

Planning, Finance and Governance
Street Addressing is an invaluable tool for city management, although often misunderstood. It provides an opportunity to (a) create or update a map of the city that can be used by different municipal departments, (b) conduct a systematic survey that collects targeted information on the city, its services, businesses and population and (c) set up a database on the built environment that is, too often, unavailable. Information collected is associated with an address, thus making it locatable.
