Cities are increasingly aware of the need to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to changes in weather patterns, resulting in the production of urban climate change plans to coordinate interventions across multiple urban sectors (ARUP, 2011; Carbon Disclosure Project, 2011; Carmin et al., 2012; Hunt and Watkiss, 2011). Typically, multi-city studies have used questionnaires to gather evidence of urban climate preparedness, whereas this research has compiled and assessed approved and published climate change plans (Figure 1) by 30 cities in the UK (representing ~28 % of the UK’s population).
