Climate Resilient and
Inclusive Cities Project

We are delighted to announce that we have updated the Pilot Cities pages, adding the Urban Analysis Reports written by the experts on each of the ten pilot cities pages.

These presentations provide a deep insight on the general situation and challenges met by the different pilot cities in terms of Resilience against Climate Change and Inclusivity. The main topics covered by those Urban Analysis Reports are the way cities are impacted by climate change, disasters, air pollution, waste management, water pollution, and the participation of civil society and governance.

In addition, Policy briefs redacted by CRIC partners and built upon the findings of the CRIC experts have been released as well. In those briefs, partners provide insight and additionnal recommendations on how cities could become more resilient and inclusive.

We are delighted to announce that we have updated the Pilot Cities pages, adding the preliminary presentations of the studies led by the experts on each of the ten pilot cities pages.

The Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) is a UN-Habitat driven World Urban Campaign initiative. The UTC is conceived as an open space for critical exchange between urban researchers, experts and decision-makers who believe urbanization is an opportunity and can contribute to meaningful urban transformations. It is also intended as a forum to create consensus among stakeholders engaged in addressing urbanization challenges and proposing solutions to urban futures.

In this session focused on Making Chennai a Climate Smart City, Dr. Pascaline Gaborit from Pilot4Dev will discuss urban resilience (and disasters risk management) in the Urban Labs session. This will be a good opportunity to promote the CRIC project !!!

The cost of delaying climate actions would be considerably higher than the cost of acting now, said European Union Ambassador to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam HE Vincent Piket to 153 people attending the interactive webinar entitled “Mainstreaming Climate Resilience in City Planning” on 27 October 2020 hosted by CRIC, as part of the European Union Climate Diplomacy Week.

Over the course of three hours, panellists from the Indonesian ministries discussed national priorities in climate resilience, policies and regulations to support city-level climate programme and climate financing mechanisms. The participants are government representatives from 43 Indonesian cities and regencies, including Vice Mayor of Kupang and Vice Mayor of Surakarta.

Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities Project will take part in the European Union Climate Diplomacy Week, where the Project will host a webinar on "Mainstreaming Climate Resilience in City Planning", on October 27. 

CRIC Project held a successful webinar on “Climate Resilient and Inclusive Urban Development” on Tuesday, (20/10), as part of the Indonesia Ministry of Environment & Forestry’s (MoEF) Climate Festival, with around 150 attendants. This event represents the growing importance of multi-level governance on climate change, of which the CRIC Project can help to set in motion.

A webinar on Climate Resilient and Inclusive Urban Development will be organised online on the 20th of October 2020 at 13:00pm (Jakarta time), 8:00am (Brussels time) between the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), the European Union (EU), The United Cities and Local Governments Asia Pacific (UCLG ASPAC), Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) partners as well as Pilot Cities representatives. It will be moderated by Asih Budiati, Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) Project Manager.

As part of the 2020 Festival Iklim series, the session will discuss the project framework and its implementataion as part of efforts and contributions to the achievement of targets and national climate resilience commitments.

CRIC Project successfully held a week of virtual public hearing meetings on Urban Analysis Report from September 14 to 22, with 280 people in attendance. The meetings have been met with a positive response from the diverse participants expecting that the Urban Analysis Report can provide practical recommendations for cities to develop climate-proof development policies and plans.

The Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) Project, with the support from the European Union, will hold a virtual public hearing on urban analysis reports of ten Indonesian pilot cities, from 14 to 18 September and on 22 September 2020. The public hearing seeks to collect feedbacks from city stakeholders in a bid to improve the proposed urban analysis report as a baseline document for city to prioritise its urban development agenda.

Urban Analysis Reports are the results of 3-month study in ten CRIC’s pilot cities, conducted by a panel of urban experts. These ten cities are Pangkal Pinang, Bandar Lampung, Pekanbaru, Cirebon, Banjarmasin, Samarinda, Mataram, Gorontalo, Kupang and Ternate. The reports assess city’s climate change preparedness by looking at its urban characteristics, existing programmes and policy gaps. Report results will also help city determine its prioritised sectors and formulate relevant policies and plans.

Putra Dwitama, CRIC Project Coordinator of UCLG ASPAC says that the report is a valuable input for cities in their development and policies planning processes, especially in an attempt to build resilience to climate change. Report recommendations can be applied to strengthen cities’ strategic sectors that are affected by climate change.

“This public hearing is a strategic opportunity for cities to confirm findings and recommendations from the urban analysis report. The report should be acknowledged by city stakeholders as the main counterpart of the CRIC project and the main user of this report,” he says.

The Urban Analysis Report is one of the key documents that will be produced within the CRIC Project framework. It is intended that the project implementation will always be supported by research and empirical evidence that may vary from city to city.

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.
