Climate-resilient urban planning – support for city authorities in the Philippines
As of: September 2020
Objective and activities
The project advises the Philippine government on how to promote adaptation to climate change by means of appropriate policy measures and sustainable urban development plans. With the ultimate aim of supporting the national climate change action plan, the institutional capacities on national and sub-national levels are being strengthened to steer urban growth into suitable areas and to shape it there in line with principles of resilience. The project further develops existing guidelines for sustainable urban planning. Policy advice, capacity development and model implementation activities help to gain new insights into climate-related urban development. Five cities with different ecosystems will be used as pilots to show how resilience can be strengthened by means of targeted innovative measures. The prerequisite here is a balance between economic and ecological concerns. The results are documented and published. The project is part of the IKI Corona Response Package.
State of implementation/results
- With the extension of the Corona Response Package, the advisory portfolio can be extended to disaster risk.
