Building Resilience of the Urban Poor


This animated video shows the importance of strengthening the resilience of the urban poor in Asia and the Pacific.

The urban poor are disproportionately threatened by climate risks, which impact their lives, livelihoods, and well-being. Strengthening their resilience will require integrated interventions across six policy areas (social protection, public health, livelihood, housing, community infrastructure, and urban planning) at different scales (household, community, and city levels). Three enabling factors – capable, accountable, and responsive governance; climate and urban data; and climate and urban finance − need to be put in place to ensure that pro-poor climate resilience solutions promote transformational change to address the underlying drivers of vulnerability.
