12 – 30 June 2017 — The Urban Management Tools for Climate Change course (UMTCC) offered the opportunity to national
and local urban policy makers, municipality officials, planners and lecturers in the field of climate and
environmental management to gain knowledge of cities vulnerability and its linkages with other human
factors exacerbating climate stresses, such as land use management and spatial planning decisions. The
course showcased different examples of how cities are dealing with the need for adaptation and
mitigation. It will do so by utilising lecturing and discussion formats, serious gaming, analysis of data
inventories and group exercises built on decision-making and action planning.
