As a Canadian import to New Zealand, Rhiannon Barbour helped relate lessons learned in New Zealand to Canadian planning practice.
Acknowledging that cities are called to be leaders in climate action, this presentation presents the research that served as the basis of the book "Cities Leading Climate Action-Urban Policy and Planning".

Drawing on in-depth case study research on Vancouver, Portland, Glasgow and Dublin, Dr.Dekker examined the policy development processes employed by urban policy makers to respond to climate change, looking specifically at the utilization of collaborative planning.
