Due to climate change, cloudbursts happen more often. This might put our cities at risk. Increasing the resilience and limiting the vulnerability of cities can limit the effects of these events. In this reports, it is studied which aspects in relation to information, knowledge, organization and collaboration are important for good cloudburst emergency planning, starting from the following research question: "How to plan for cloudburst emergency situations to increase resilience and reduce vulnerability in a specific urban context?" Together with a literature review, a case study analysis is conducted to explore cloudburst management practices in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. As a result, a theoretical framework for cloudburst emergency planning is developed and recommendations are given for cloudburst emergency planning in urban areas.
