A Comprehensive Capacity Building Program on Urban Climate Change Resilience in India
|Project Summary||There is a strong need to equip the planning mechanisms in urban areas to withstand, adapt, and become resilient to climate change impacts. To be able to do so, the practitioners and various stakeholders in the urban space not only need an understanding of climate science but also the linkages to climate impacts to city systems, such that this information could be logically applied to decision-making processes and could be inbuilt into the development paradigm. |
This project focuses on designing and delivering a capacity building program on urban climate resilience to the following set of stakeholders: (i) Elected representatives; (ii) Policy-makers; (iii) City officials and practitioners; (iv) Students and Researchers.
The project endeavors that the goal of building urban climate change resilience is inculcated at all levels of governance and implemented to its true intent.
