In building climate change resilience, stakeholder participation is one essential aspect that needs to be emphasized. As defined by ISET (2013), urban climate change resilience (UCCR) is needed to enable cities in facing uncertainties and changes by utilizing various resources and abilities to ensure the system still run its function in the middle of climate change impacts. Human resource in this case is absolutely something that should be highlighted within the context of participation in creating a more robust and resourcefulness system. There are those people that own decision making power. Their capacity and knowledge in climate change resilience will affect how the issue is being considered in the city. Elements such as government, practitioners, academics, community, and business sectors have their own role, strength, and limitation. They also have different interests and perspectives towards climate change and its impacts to things that they see important for themselves. The varying capacities that are owned by different stakeholder groups should be seen as a potential for collaboration. Based on Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) experience in Indonesia, the objective to mainstreaming UCCR in city level is very much influenced by  the existence of a multi-stakeholder platform that carries the responsibility in ensuring coordination in different development sectors. This learning paper document is uncovering the learning from Climate Change Working Group or City Team in different ACCCRN cities in Indonesia, including Bandar Lampung, Blitar, Cirebon, Palembang, Pekalongan, Probolinggo, Semarang, and Tarakan.
