A governance approach to building urban climate resilience

This brief highlights lessons learned from the Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) and offers insights for other Urban Climate Change Resilience (UCCR) programs. In 2009, Mercy Corps launched the $6.32 million ACCCRN initiative in the Indonesian cities of Bandar Lampung and Semarang to strengthen their capacity as they survive, adapt, and transform in the face of climate-related shocks and stresses.

This series of case studies are aimed to discover the key lessons and best practices for integrating climate change into diverse programs and contexts. They are intended to inform how CRD is designed and implemented in Mercy Corps, and share this knowledge to other practitioners and implementation for other agencies grappling with these questions.
