Discussion 3 of the online learning exchange focused upon the value of integrating climate change considerations into territorial planning. Ignacio Lorenzo Arana of Montevideo, and Paula Cristina Sierra-Correa and Francisco Arias-Isaza of Cartagena shared unique experiences from their cities, both of which have successfully developed territorial climate change plans. Both Montevideo and Cartagena used participatory approaches in the development of city level climate change strategies, which enabled the implementation of context specific actions with high buy-in from the community. The involvement of a diverse group of stakeholders was crucial in managing expectations and identifying gaps in planning efforts. Learning Alliance participants reviewed these interviews and shared experiences with land-use planning from a variety of African, Asian and Latin American cities.
