The main thrust of this tool is to examine major aspects of urban flood management through in the context of climate change. This document deals with the “management” process and less about the technical, structural, and capital-intensive strategies usually pursued in coping with urban floods. It also explores the vital interaction and necessary overlap of urban flood management with land use management, urban planning, socio-economic development, and public awareness and participation. All of these issues lie at the core of planning for and carrying out strategies for climate change adaptation. The tool includes the concepts from both tools “Flood management in a changing climate” and “Urban flood risk management,” while at the same time describing specific issues and practices related to climate change in an urban environment and to increasing resilience of the population.
