dc.description.abstract The CCaR project has contributed significantly to the development of strategies and methodologies for climate change adaptation (CCA). In cities, assistance in the development of disaster risk reduction (DRR) strategies based on knowledge generated from the project has been provided. In Vancouver region, information for adaptation planning in municipalities was provided; contributing to the flagship Adaptation Strategy formulated by the City of Vancouver and passed by Council. Working groups have been established in Vancouver and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration. In Metro Manila, systems thinking about climate change adaptation have been mainstreamed in national and local government processes through specific policy instruments in collaboration with the all-levels of government, the military, regional scientific groups like UNISDR-ASTAAG and private sector partners such as the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation and Partnerships for Climate and Disaster Resilience. The development of the City Resilience Systems Dynamic Model (CRS) over the course of the project is providing a new methodology for quantifying the relationships between climate impacts, socio-economic implications, and the development of adaptation strategies that will be applied to all case study cities, now and in future. en
