This paper examines case studies from three regions— Bangladesh, Malabon City (Philippines) and Cartegana (Colombia) —that are making progress on integrating climate adaptation into planning and implementing on-the-ground actions to build coastal resilience. The enabling factors and challenges shared by these locations can serve as models and inspiration to policy makers and other stakeholders in other countries that are grappling with similar issues as they work to narrow the “implementation gap” between planning and action.
