Brainstorming measures based on sectors / functions

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


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


  1. Have a look at the two surveys prepared in the mitigation and adaptation sectors exercise 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. 



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 for example at the GHG inventory from local government / community areas (template M2, M3). For adaptation you can approach the exercise from the perspective of hazard/impact, risks or adaptive capacity perspective (A2).
