The ELLA Learning Alliance on Climate Resilient Cities was a four-month online learning exchange involving participants from Latin America, Africa and South Asia who are policymakers, practitioners and researchers working to confront climate related challenges in their respective cities. Each week the ELLA Moderator, Charlotte Heffer, and guest experts offered thematic posts in the online learning space, exemplifying Latin American experiences of making cities more climate resilient, with a significant focus on mechanisms and actions that reduce vulnerability. Best practices and methodologies from Latin America cities were shared with participants in the form of case studies, scholarly articles, interviews with relevant experts and videos. Based on a set of guiding questions, participants were in turn invited to share experiences from their respective cities in the face of similar climate related challenges.
