Short summary
Our results showed that adaptations through designing and updating urban drainage systems are effective in coping with urban flood risk under climate change. In the case study region, the magnitude of urban flood risk reduction through adaptations is more than double that by climate mitigations. We emphasize the importance of accounting for both global-scale climate mitigation and local-scale adaptations in assessing future urban flood risks in a consistent frame.
