CRIC Project continues its supports to pilot cities through capacity building in developing the strategic city specific climate action plan (CAP). It is one way to identify a city’s climate priorities, and CAP provides evidence-based measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to address the potential climate impact on city development.
The CRIC project is a 5 year project co-funded by the European Union. It proposes a long lasting and unique cooperation through a triangular cooperation between cities and research centres in Europe, South Asia (India, Nepal, Bangladesh), and Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand). The Project will also contribute to sustainable integrated urban development, good governance, and climate adaptation/mitigation through long lasting partnerships, and tools such as sustainable local action plans, early warning tools, air quality and waste management in consultation with experts’ panels.
The target groups of the Project will be local governments, cities, urban stakeholders working on climate resilience, climate mitigation and adaptation, and good governance of inclusive cities. With final beneficiaries including but not limited to local community of the cities/provinces, including women, marginalised sector, civil society, and private sectors.
