Community Based Pilot Project for Urban Climate
The Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) aims to scale up urban climate change resilience (UCCR) especially for the urban poor across 25 secondary cities in Asia, prioritizing seven of ADB’s developing member countries (DMCs), namely Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines and Viet Nam. The UCCRTF takes an urban systems-centered approach that supports climate change integration into city planning, project development and implementation, operations and knowledge sharing and capacity building, to reduce the risks of increasing urbanization and climate change on urban populations, particularly the poor.
Sub-Project 3 aims to contribute to UCCRTF’s overall goal that cities in selected DMCs, especially the poor and vulnerable residents, are more resilient to the direct and indirect impacts of climate change. The outcome is that vulnerable communities in selected UCCRTF supported cities are made more resilient to the impacts of climate change and the outputs are that community resilience plans are prepared, at least 20 community-led projects are implemented, and mechanisms are established to sustain the community-led projects after the project period.
The Community resilience officer will be responsible to provide advice, technical assistance and guidance to the implementation of community based resilience project. S/he will also be responsible in overseeing field team work especially those related to community engagement, ensuring capacity building and ability of the community to prepare resilience strategy, prioritizing resilience project, and its implementation. S/he is expected to lead strategy development that will ensure sustainability of the community resilience project with focus on ensuring that the community-led projects are integrated into government planning processes and can continue beyond UCCRTF support.
