This chapter provides an overview of the key concerns, concepts and principles that bind the empirical cases presented in 12 subsequent chapters. In particular, it raises two concerns: (a) that understanding multifaceted urban poverty requires a conscious consideration of climate change as a global process with local impacts; and (b) there is a lack of meaningful action to incorporate and understand climate change impacts on the urban poor. It also raises five concepts and principles: participation; adaptation; co-creation; resilience; and transformation.
