This portfolio of projects provides a ‘first generation’ view of how a set of cities have interpreted building urban climate change resilience (UCCR) challenges and translated their understanding into targeted priorities and actions, as a pioneering effort to advance on-the-ground actions. These projects seek to strengthen the capabilities of cities to plan, finance and implement UCCR strategies for coping with the inevitable impacts of climate change taking place now, and in the decades to come.
The document describes the projects capturing details from the various experiences that will be useful to other cities as they realize the critical importance of building resilience to climate change. It presents key insights emerging from an analysis of 36 intervention projects, which have been funded and are being implemented under the Rockefeller Foundation Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) in ten initial cities (Indore, Gorakhpur and Surat in India, Bandar Lampung and Semarang in Indonesia, Chiang Rai and Hat Yai in Thailand, and Can Tho, Da Nang and Quy Nhon in Vietnam). 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.
