Urban Climate Change Resilience in Action: Lessons from Projects in 10 ACCCRN Cities
February 1, 2015
This paper presents key insights emerging from an analysis of the 36 intervention projects, totaling approximately $15.5 million, which have been funded and are being implemented under the Rockefeller Foundation Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) in ten initial cities. As a pioneering effort to advance on-the-ground actions aimed at building urban climate change resilience (UCCR), this portfolio of projects2 provides a ‘first generation’ view of how a set of cities have interpreted UCCR challenges and translated their understanding into targeted priorities and actions. One of the intentions of the ACCCRN initiative was to advance the still young field of UCCR with practical actions that substantiate the growing number of theoretical frameworks.
