This guidebook, based on a case study from Wuhan City, People"s Republic of China, bridges the gap between the theoretical analyses of climate change impact on the urban water sector and the planning decisions that municipal authorities and utility managers need to make to increase the sector's climate change resilience. It answers questions that city planners and managers ask about the effects of climate change, particularly on services and utilities, and what we can be done to prepare for these. The solutions are presented in an easy-to-follow program of investment decisions, developed through a "bottom-up" approach involving Wuhan stakeholders. (Source: http://ctc-n.org/)
