Building urban resilience to climate change: what works where, and why

Source(s):  Institute for Social and Environmental Transition - International (ISET)

This document reports on a resilience-building curriculum that includes laying the groundwork for addressing climate change and climate resilience, conducting a climate change vulnerability and risk assessment, and using this assessment and other materials to prepare an initial resilience strategy, developed in 15 cities in 5 countries — Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Thailand and the United States.

The document: (i) introduces the current curriculum and the aspects of the curriculum that have proven key to its utility; (ii) highlights the commonalities we have found in building resilience across this varied spectrum of cultures and capacities; and (iii) discusses the types of country, culture, and capacity-specific modifications that we have found necessary to implement to maintain stakeholder engagement, comprehension, and implementation. It concludes with a discussion of the implications of this work for US climate change adaptation efforts, and for building resilience and increasing the capacity of vulnerable groups and peoples in general.
