As a result of its coastal location and severe water scarcity condition, the city of La Paz, Baja Cali-fornia Sur, Mexico, is extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. This work presents the main findings of the Climate Change Action Plan for the City of La Paz and Neighbouring Areas PACCLAP including its development process and the main results of its two larger components: first, the vulnerability to climate change in the area and the adaptation measures suggested; and second, the local greenhouse gas emissions inventory and the recommended mitigation measures. In addition, the proposed actions have important impacts directly related with the Municipality Development Plan, thus making the PACCLAP a valuable instrument to support current and future decision makers in the formulation of public policies to foster a more sustainable development and improve the wellbeing of the local society.
