The main objective of the Partnership on Climate Adaptation is to find the best way to translate the needs of cities into concrete action. Through proposals in the areas of better regulation, funding and knowledge exchange, the Partnership wants to achieve a common awareness level of the urgency climate change carries and develop progressively city capacities to address and adapt to the impacts of such change. Through thematic working groups, the Partnership will define an Action Plan where every action chosen implemented in urban areas will be assessed in light of the Adaptation Policy Cycle. The cycle consists of four main phases (Assessing Risk and Vulnerability to Climate Change, Select and Planning Adaptation Actions, Implementing Adaptation Actions, Monitoring, and Evaluation), with the multilevel governance support and participation.
