In Search of Good Practices for Urban Adaptation

ESCAP, UN-HABITAT and the Rockefeller Foundation are seeking assistance in documenting good practices on urban climate change adaptation & resilience as part of an effort to prepare a 'Quick Guide' on climate change adaptation and resilience in urban poor communities in Asia and the Pacific.

If you know of a practice that has already been documented extensively, e.g. for an award, for advocacy or training – online or in print, kindly send the a) name and location of the good practice; b) link to and/ or the document itself describing the good practice; and c) contact details of a focal point able to provide further information to escap-edd-suds@un.org by latest Mon, 27 Feb 2012.

Meanwhile, in recognition that many good practices have yet to be recorded, the partners also seek to commission the documentation of several good practices between February and May 2012. Local documenters of selected good practices will be remunerated for their contribution and work closely with ESCAP in a reiterative documentation process, as part of which ESCAP also plans to visit some of the practices. If you or your organization is interested in documenting a good practice between February and May 2012 that you have extensive knowledge of, that is at an advanced implementation stage and that has not been documented in detail before, then kindly send below completed Summary Questionnaire to: escap-edd-suds@un.org by latest Mon, 27 Feb 2012. The partners will short-list good practices to be documented from all completed expressions of interest that we receive and contact focal points of the selected practices.
