The Green Book is an online planning support tool that supports climate resilient development at local authority level. It contains a range of tools and resources that demonstrate the likely impacts that climate change and urbanisation will have on South Africa’s cities and towns.


One of the key resources available on the Green Book platform is the Green Book Adaptation Actions Tool which was developed as an interactive tool to support climate change adaptation planning within local government. The Tool provides a range of planning and design actions that can be taken by local governments to adapt to the impacts of climate change, reduce exposure to hazards, and exploit opportunities for sustainable development.


This is one of four interactive tools and resources available on the Green Book platform.
