Prospering in a changing climate: A Climate Change Adaptation Framework for South Australia August 2012

"This Climate Change Adaptation Framework sets the foundation for South Australians to develop well-informed and timely actions to be better prepared for the impacts of climate change. It is intended to guide action by government agencies, local government, non-government organisations, business and the community." The framework's objectives are based on supporting good leadership, basing policy on good science, ensuring the natural environment, landscape and communities are resilient to the effects of climate change.

Planning for Climate Change: Guidance and Model Policies for Local Authorities

This report intents to act as a guide to help councils manage climate change. It is a high-order document that introduces a framework and useful guiding principles. Although UK-focussed, it provides interesting commentary and ideas for planning for energy security and the electrification of transport.

Planning Policy Statement: Planning and Climate Change - Supplement to Planning Policy Statement 1

This planning policy statement provides an overview of the UK approach to climate change adaptation and mitigation at the local level. The report contains useful guiding principles. Although UK-centric, this report may be useful for Australian strategic planners.

Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and Framework

The report contains the UK Highways Agency's Climate Change Adaptation Framework. Although a small number of transport-specific climate change risks are shown, this report focuses on the framework needed. The framework includes how priorities are give to actions (e.g. based on level of disruption) and includes a simple method for the rationale behind choosing a preferred option for the management of climate change risks.

Framework for City Climate Risk Assessment: Buenos Aires, Delhi, Lagos, and New York

Estimation of spatially and temporally disaggregated climate risks is a critical prerequisite for the assessment of effective and efficient adaptation and mitigation climate change strategies and policies in complex urban areas. This interdisciplinary research reviews current literature and practices, identifies knowledge gaps, and defines future research directions for creating a risk?based climate change adaptation framework for climate and cities programs. The focus is on cities in developing and emerging economies. The framework unpacks risk into three vectors
