Abstract: The main purpose of this chapter is to 1) note the impacts of climate change on human settlements and vice versa, and 2) propose design and institutional strategies to improve the resilience of human settlements to withstand these impacts or at least reduce the vulnerability of human settlements to these impacts. This chapter constructs a Human Settlement Resilience Framework and interventionist strategies. These strategies are based on the premise that resilience can be built into human settlement development.
