WEBINAR: Identifying Differentiated Needs for Resilience Planning in Urban Poor Communities

The Urban Community Resilience Assessment (UCRA) is a tool that identifies differentiated needs for resilience planning in urban poor communities and focuses on current and future climate risks. The tool is structured as three aspects – assessing the vulnerability context at the city level, mapping collective community resilience potentials, and assessing individuals’ capacities to respond to climate risks and extreme events and to date has been applied in Porto Alegre and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Surat (India) and Semarang (Indonesia). This webinar will look at key results from the applications in the cities and discuss how the tool can better capture differentiated needs to inform urban resilience planning.
