With input from a range of academic disciplines and based on the latest scientific knowledge, this issue addresses what climate change means for the urban environment in terms of impacts, risk assessment, adaptation, and decision-making under uncertainty. Although the papers are based on the latest research in the UK, the discussions and findings presented here are intended to have wider resonance.
