  • Climate change is not always relevant to all urban contexts
  • Putting too much emphasis on climate change can lead to people attributing all their problems to climate change!
  • Even when climate change is an issue, it may not be appropriate to go into much detail
  • Participatory methods of PAPE approach are key
