Investing in Urban Climate Resilience

The story of the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (2009-2015).



The multi-donor Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) aims to build resilience to the effects of climate change and reduce the vulnerability of the urban poor in 25 medium-sized cities in Asia. In addition to infrastructure investments, the trust fund provides grants that enable cities to prioritise actual resilience needs in their planning processes and service delivery. The partnership was initially founded by DFID, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and has since welcomed USAID and SECO.
