Climate Change Adaptation in a Multi-Level Governance Context: A Perspective from Subnational Governments

Climate action is undertaken by multiple actors across multiple levels of governance and for this reason climate governance has been established as a multi-level governance (MLG) process. But to what extent is MLG delivering climate-resilient outputs? What are the challenges that MLG brings, and how can subnational governments deal with and further address these challenges?

RegionsAdapt Brief Report 2019

By joining the RegionsAdapt initiative, regional governments commit to annually disclose their data on climate risks and adaptation through CDP’s States and Regions questionnaire. Each year, Regions4 publishes a summary of the data to inform about regional governments’ ambitious actions to adapt to climate change. The annual disclosure process helps RegionsAdapt members to better understand the risks they face from climate change, measure their progress and learn from each other’s adaptation actions.

Communicating climate change: A practitioner’s guide

The guide is full of tips for communicating climate change effectively, drawn from CDKN’s experience in South Asia and Southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. It is by practitioners and for practitioners. If you have ever tried to explain to colleagues in your organisation, policy-makers, or the broader public how the climate is changing, how it affects them, and what they can do about it, then this guide is for you. Whether you are in government, business, civil society or academia, when we refer to ‘climate communicators’, we mean you!

Just offshore of Northern California lies an underwater national park called the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary.
