In Durban, climate change concerns were mainstreamed within various municipal short term and long-term planning processes. They also acted as a catalyst for the development of a new assessment tool to facilitate the incorporation of climate change concerns into the city’s long term planning. This will help reduce the tensions between development and environmental priorities by allowing decision makers to better understand long-term development.
