Cities around the World have created climate change (CC) plans to prevent and prepare for the effects of CC, many of these plans are carried out voluntarily, and are thus creating a new practice in local planning. A practice shaped in an institutional void where the majority of national governments are remarkably absent. This chapter examines which future climate reality cities may expect and the following impacts that are to be incorporated into urban planning. It further discusses 10 implications for climate actions accompanied with examples on how these implications can be accommodated. The chapter concludes by looking into the scenarios for the future societal and urban development with perspectives from the contributions of popular reads to the climate debate and their outlooks on future challenges for urban planning. These popular contributions are discussed within a historical environmental perspective of degrowth and technology.
