Bandar Lampung is the first of ten Indonesian pilot cities who established a City Working Group on Climate Change, marking its commitment to participate in the Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cites (CRIC) Project implementation from 2020 to 2024. This City Working Group consists of 33 members representing diverse voices of local government, universities, civil society organisations and the media who work together to accelerate climate actions at a city level.
The impact of climate change has already affected Indonesian cities, arriving sooner than many expected. In order to prevail, cities must adapt, take action and make sustainability as their raison d'être.
A training on sustainable urban development will be organised online on the 22nd and 23rd of July 2020 by Pilot4DEV in cooperation with the project's partners.
Our audience will be city mayors and practitioners in Indonesia and in South East Asia. The training is being developed by ISOCARP Institute - Centre for Urban Excellence.
Ten Indonesian pilot cities joined a series of bilateral online discussions, June 2-11, facilitated by Putra Dwitama, the Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) Project Coordinator from UCLG ASPAC, in a bid to identify challenges and priorities in city development plan. The discussion concluded that all pilot cities are exposed to climate-related disaster risks and still miss out on inclusivity, in which the CRIC project can help fill the gaps.
Tackling global climate change requires commitment, careful planning, collaboration and appropriate tools implemented starting from a city level. This is the key takeaway from the online focused group discussion (e-FGD) moderated by Asih Budiati, Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) Project Manager from UCLG ASPAC on April 29, where 37 participants discussed plans and framework to implement Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) Project in ten Indonesian cities.
The United Cities and Local Governments Asia Pacific (UCLG ASPAC) and the Indonesia Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) discussed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) establishing plans to pursue collaboration in the Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities project implementation, during a virtual meeting on Wednesday (24/6).
In the framework of the CRIC project, and after the individual workshops organized with the pilot cities, a training on urban sustainable development will be organized online the 22nd and 23rd of July 2020.
Our audience will be city mayors and practitioners in Indonesia. The provider of the training will be the ISOCARP institute, which is the international network of urban planners.
