Enhancing urban climate change resilience: Seven entry points for action

Source(s):  Asian Development Bank (ADB)

This paper synthesizes existing knowledge on urban climate change resilience (UCCR) to identify entry points for action in order to help Asian Development Bank's (ADB) developing member countries, ADB project officers and partners, and the wider urban development community gain a general understanding on entry points for enhancing UCCR. It is expected that ADB’s Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) and other similar initiatives in the Asian region will benefit from the entry points discussed in this paper, and, over time, will refine the existing entry points and add new ones based on experiences. This growing interest in resilience has led to the consolidation of a certain amount of knowledge on enhancing UCCR. 

Recognizing that pathways to UCCR are diverse, the sequence of the following entry points that follow is not meant to prescribe a tightly bound set of steps that must be adhered to, particularly given the complex and dynamic nature of cities. However, a comprehensive approach to building UCCR may best begin with collecting the right information and knowledge, and move on to planning and policy processes, strengthening capacity, engaging with a variety of stakeholders, and accessing finance.
