Urban Climate Change Resilience (UCCR)
The Rockefeller Foundation supported programme was focused to build sustainable capacity of GEAG for leading UCCR initiatives in Eastern India by assisting three cities – Saharsa (Bihar), Basirhat (West Bengal) and Jorhat (Assam) in carrying out the vulnerability analysis and developing city resilience strategies. Through this processes, efforts have been made to mainstream UCCR in the development process of the cities so that they can build their own capacity to function as resource organization to design, plan, operate and manage climate change projects. The project also undertook advocacy on UCCR issues at the state, national and international levels for scaling-up and replication of these processes.
Following are the major outcomes and impacts of the program:
