11 Lessons learned Plans are nothing, planning is everything (Dwight D. Eisenhower) Awareness is important but not enough we need changes in behaviour - and how to get them? Risk management: What kinds of consequences do we accept and what action do we take? What is the responsibility of the citizens and of the authorities? Adaptation is a process; proactive, coping with consequences, local solutions and cooperation Decreasing vulnerability in current climate enhances adaptation For implementation: commitment of management and support by decision makers is key Engaging new actors: new approaches and thinking, new ways of action Role of state level government: regulatory framework in implementation, guidance, coordination, resources? Resilient Cities 2013 Susanna Kankaanpää HSY
