This Notebook is a companion resource to the Methodological Guide for the Formulation of Municipal Land Use Plan published by the Ministry of Economic Planning and Development (MEPyD) and the Ministry of Economy, Planning and Development (DGODT) in 2016. The Notebook and the accompanying tools and resources will help you organize and use climate information as you develop your land use plans so that you can identify the risks you should consider and address during the planning process. The Notebook can also help you to integrate climate change factors into other municipal planning and decision making, such as in your municipal development planning process.
