Over the past decade, widespread concerns have surfaced globally on the persistent failures in making urbanization socially inclusive. This concern has further escalated in the contexts of the added risks and complexities due to climate change. Over half of the world’s population lives in cities, mainly in the Global South where urban space and political institutions are often exclusionary, and vulnerabilities to climate change are yet to be adequately understood. This book aims to pool key insights from the worlds of practice, policy and theory to understand ways to achieve inclusion, whereby individuals and communities can lead a meaningful and dignifi ed life at a time when urbanization is impacted by climate change.
