The importance of tackling flood risks related to climate change has been highlighted in policy-making in Taiwan due to the experiences of flooding disasters in the past and the estimated threats of flooding in the future. This chapter presents two cases in Kaohsiung to illustrate different types of spatial development: one focuses on the city centre and another on an area near the edge of the metropolitan area. It presents the characteristics of planning that are especially relevant to promote urban resilience. These characteristics are proposed according to the literature review of urban resilience related to planning and climate change. The empirical study investigates policies, government reports and research documents that were published in the past two decades and played critical roles in framing decisions to tackle flood risks. The chapter addresses the comparative analysis of local collaboration in the two cases.
