This guidebook is intended to provide an overview of how to conduct climate change and land-use change impact assessments at the local level, so that the local impacts on water, biodiversity, and health can be better understood. A key aspect of the guidebook is the tutorials provided for conducting climate change/land-use change scenario analysis and impact assessment using free software. The methodology presented (PCLM) and training materials provided can help local governments with their climate change adaptation and land-use planning, and is designed to complement/support countries’ official planning processes. Using these training materials as a basis, more intensive in-person (or online) trainings can also be conducted to provide more specialized or location-specific trainings in priority sites.
