Climate adaptation is a timely yet complex topic. It does not fit squarely into any one disciplinary realm, especially given the range of strategies, tools, and techniques that must be used to further our understanding of weather-related hazards and the impacts on people and places. Assessing vulnerability and risk, developing strategies to mitigate the potential impacts of natural hazards, and related policy and governance frameworks are examples that demonstrate the complex, interdisciplinary nature of the challenges that planning practitioners and policy-makers commonly face. By examining specific themes and problems, this book provides users with an understanding of the meaningful cross-cutting themes and connections and how the combination of geospatial tools and techniques can be used to plan for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to climate impacts. However, a discussion of tools and techniques devoid of context and concepts is problematic. As such, the book sets out to provide relevant context and concepts for an intended broad audience of scholars, practitioners, and students.
