SPS 4: Low Carbon and Resilient Urban Development and Adaptation to Climate Change

Focus on the interplay of climate change with other stressors in the Yangtze River and Yellow River wider basins. Aim to prepare a comprehensive report on options to integrate climate adaptation with other key policies – low-carbon pathways, integrated land-use planning, sustainable fisheries, pollution control, nitrogen recycling and other goals. The Chief Advisors suggest the following issues that the SPS may wish to consider in its work:

  • Pathways to advance integrated river basin management in the context of climate change;
  • Suggestions to align integrated freshwater management with the Sustainable Development Goals, and options for different tools and methods, including basin-wide indicators, forward scenario planning, regulations.
