Abstract: This thesis sets out doctoral research on the practice of Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA) among the urban poor in the context of settlement development planning (such as slum up-grading and resettlement). It is rooted in development and adaptation theories, and due to its interdisciplinary nature straddles the fields of urban planning and architecture, global environmental change and international development among others. Through context analyses and case study research in Metro Manila, the Philippines the thesis addresses a lack of knowledge and research about CBA practice in urban areas, and contributes empirical support for conceptualising settlement development planning among the poor as a form of urban CBA. This is particularly demonstrated through direct and indirect interventions within settlement development programmes that reduce the vulnerability and exposure and build the adaptive capacity of urban poor inhabitants to climate risks, such as climate-related hazards and current and future impacts of climate change.
