Brainstorming measures based on sectors / functions

In a previous session, you have identified the most relevant sectors for mitigation and adaptation in your city. Now it is time to think about concrete measures in each of the sectors / fields of action / functions.  

Goal

Identify short-, medium- and long-term measures for different mitigation and adaptation sectors/areas.

Tasks

  1. Have a look at the two canvases prepared in the exercise of mitigation and adaptation sectors in Phase II, Step 2.
  2. Use the prepared tables to collect, based on the highest priorities for mitigation and adaptation, short-, medium-, and long-term measures related to each sector / area.
  3. If you want to analyse (list activities your city can implement) both issues (mitigation and adaptation) at the same time, you can also look at the different city functions (Template C).
  4. Discuss results with the group. 

Materials

Note

Involve as many stakeholders as possible to get different perspectives from the sectors. This exercise is also recommended when different cities are participating, so they can get mutual inspiration regarding the different measures.  

For mitigation, you can do the same exercise but looking e.g. at the GHG inventory from local government / community areas (template M2, M3) / For adaptation you can look from the perspective of hazard/impact, risks or adaptive capacity perspective (A2).

Timeframe

30 to 180 minutes

Output

Table/list of short-, medium- and long-term measures along different areas/sectors of mitigation and adaptation.
