This guide, Climate Change Adaptation by Design – A Guide for Sustainable Communities by Robert Shaw, Michelle Colley and Richenda Connell (Town and Country Planning Association, London, 2007), illustrates how adaptation can be integrated into the planning, design and development of new and existing communities. It aims to help planners, developers, architects and urban designers in the public and private sectors develop better understanding of climate risks, demonstrate effective climate adaptation strategies and consider the role of the planning system, communities, other stakeholders and delivery bodies.
