Urban Climate Resilience Framework


March 2013


This article describes an operational framework that indicates how characteristics of resilience can be synthesised from research efforts of many different disciplines. The conceptual framework provides practical guidance on building resilience now, rather than anticipating changes at some time in future. This framework is built to guide vulnerability assessment, structure planning processes for local interventions and enhance exchange of learning in building resilience. This framework has been used by cities in Indonesia, India, Thailand and Vietnam to plan climate adaptation actions.
