|Toelichting (Engels)||In recent years, urban governance has become an important form of governance in the field of climate change adaptation. Specifically, the establishment of partnerships between cities has been promoted as a useful policy instrument by global city networks to exchange knowledge on this topic and to advance the implementation of climate adaptation measures. For this reason, delta cities, cities that are highly vulnerable for climate change impacts, have united in the city network Connecting Delta Cities. Within this network, Rotterdam and Ho Chi Minh City have collaborated to develop a Climate Adaptation Strategy for Ho Chi Minh City and to implement a pilot project in one of the city’s districts. This research evaluates the outcomes of this partnership for the adaptive capacity of Ho Chi Minh City, to establish whether urban partnerships are indeed able to tackle complicated issues such as climate change adaptation.|
