Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) is a network of cities in India, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Bangladesh and Vietnam, experimenting with a range of activities that will collectively improve the ability of the cities to withstand, to prepare for, and to recover from the projected impacts of climate change. One of the key intervention focuses to build policy debate around UCCR. Policy makers seek evidence-based guidance as a foundation for decision-making. ACCCRN India partners have been working with cities in India since 2008 and it highlights sound practices, demonstration projects and interventions on building resilience to climate change.
It was recognized to tap the knowledge and develop evidence-based Policy Briefs to address the needs of the decision makers at the level of the national/state and city government on UCCR. This document is Policy Brief 1: Policy and Regulatory Frameworks for Climate Adaptation and Building Resilience in Urban Areas.
