    Is the first tool of its kind for city governments to better understand how to plan for climate change impacts and impending natural disasters through sound urban planning. It equips local governments with information to actively engage in training, capacity building, and capital investment programs that are identified as priorities for building sustainable, resilient communities. A step-by-step self-assessment challenges policymakers to think about the resources needed to combat natural disasters through an innovative "hot spot" risk and vulnerability identification tool.
