THE urban infrastructure of Asian cities faces social, political, environmental and financial risks due to climate change-induced shocks and stresses. This creates the impetus for city stakeholders to assess their cities’ vulnerabilities and to look  for investment opportunities in designing and building resilient urban infrastructure.

Under this premise, the Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA) will organize the  Training on Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience on 23-27 May 2016, in Singapore.

The training aims to improve climate change and urban resilience knowledge among senior-level managers to help them design  projects. It also aims at accelerating the cities’ efforts on integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation into local strategies. In particular, it will help participants:

•  Understand urban development and climate change linkages
•  Learn financing options for mitigation and adaptation measures
•  Collaborate with peers and international experts

Terms of Participation

– Trainees are required to have 100% attendance to the course.
– City teams must coordinate with CDIA for any follow up activities after the course.
