Cities and Climate Change Initiative: Abridged Report ofIslamabad, Pakistan.
The main findings of the assessment reveal marked changes in the intensity, frequency and variability of temperature, Foreword precipitation and floods. In response to these findings, the study proposes 14 planning interventions for improving the climate-resilience of Islamabad. The study also provides recommendations for institutional arrangements which support coordinated and effective implementation of the 14 planning interventions. We hope the analyses and recommendations which this study contains will provide a foundation for the city authorities of CDA, ICTA and CADD in advancing climate-resilient planning and in creating a climate-resilient Islamabad.
