Catalyzing Urban Climate Resilience: Applying resilience Concepts to Planning Practice in the ACCCRN Program (2009–2011)
'Catalysing Urban Climate Resilience' is an Institute for Social and Environmental Transition (ISET) publication, reporting on the application of resilience concepts to planning practice in the Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) program. Focusing specifically on the findings and activities of the second phase of the ACCCRN program, the paper examines work in cities across Vietnam, India, Indonesia, and Thailand.
The report begins by presenting an overview of the conceptual framework, developed by ISET and its partners during the program itself. The Urban Climate Resilience Planning Framework (UCRPF) represents a practical way of systematically translating scientific knowledge into applied planning practice, focusing on urban systems, agents, and institutions, as well as exposure to climate change. The report then describes the communication of climate information; the applied approached to shared learning; the implementation of vulnerability analysis, sector studies, and pilot projects; and the resilience planning processes and outcomes that emerged from phase two of the project.
