Rosenzweig, C., and W.D. Solecki, 2022: Conclusions and recommendations: Prospects for action. In Climate Change and U.S. Cities: Urban Systems, Sectors, and Prospects for Action. W.D. Solecki and C. Rosenzweig, Eds. Island Press, pp. 305-312.

The objective of this book is to provide a state-of-the-art assessment of how climate change is impacting U.S. cities and will become even more impactful in the future. The focus is assessing recent literature on infrastructure and population vulnerability, and ongoing and emerging adaptation planning strategies. Urban climate risk assessment embedded in this book is made up of several critical aspects including how (1) fundamental connections between urban systems and the climate system and the associated climate risks and hazards are defined; (2) these interactions manifest as impacts, vulnerabilities, and adaptations a1nong the key urban sectors and services which enable cities and their residents to thrive; (3) socio-political factors mediate the ability of cities to manage and respond to the opportunities and challenges of climate change in the context of adaptation planning; and (4) a sustained urban climate change assessment process can be undertaken for cities in the United States. Several specific conclusions and recommendations are drawn from the assessment.
