Community based pilot project for urban climate

Program Summary
The Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) aims to scale up urban climate change resilience (UCCR) especially for the urban poor across 25 secondary cities in Asia, prioritizing seven of ADB’s developing member countries (DMCs), namely Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines and Viet Nam. The UCCRTF takes an urban systems-centered approach that supports climate change integration into city planning, project development and implementation, operations and knowledge sharing and capacity building, to reduce the risks of increasing urbanization and climate change on urban populations, particularly the poor.

Sub-Project 3 aims to contribute to UCCRTF’s overall goal that cities in selected DMCs, especially the poor and vulnerable residents, are more resilient to the direct and indirect impacts of climate change. The outcome is that vulnerable communities in selected UCCRTF supported cities are made more resilient to the impacts of climate change and the outputs are that community resilience plans are prepared, at least 20 community-led projects are implemented, and mechanisms are established to sustain the community-led projects after the project period.
