There are serious implications associated with human-inflicted climate change, which is defining the current era. Changes in weather patterns that impede food production, increasing sea levels, and excessive precipitation that may lead to catastrophic flooding are just a few of the repercussions of climate change. The scope of the issue expands dramatically when climate change, urbanization, and a growing population are considered altogether, and the repercussions may be catastrophic. Unless immediate and dramatic action is taken now, it will be more difficult and more expensive to deal with these consequences in the future. With a focus on water management and climate adaptation characteristics, this project analyses the history of Gladsaxe Municipality in order to assess the development of urban water management systems. This project discovers that the municipality exhibits the majority of the characteristics of a Water Cycle City as defined in the Urban Water Management Framework by Brown et al. (2009). This research also incorporates the multi-level perspective by Geels (2002), which makes it possible to conclude that the old state of water management permitted the shift to SUWM due to changing climate. The final stage of this project involves a discussion on how the lessons learned from Gladsaxe Municipality can be applied to similar projects so that we can depart from the traditional trajectories that we have followed in the past.
