Empowering national institutions for climate resilience
One of the main outputs of the Building Climate Resiliency through Urban Plans and Design (BCRUPD) is to strengthen national and local government units’ policies, regulations, and capacities to adapt to climate change through the implementation of sustainable urban development plans and designs. BCRUPD has capacitated its partner agencies including DHSUD, DILG, NEDA, CCC, and LCP. It has also partnered with five key cities (Angeles, Legazpi, Cagayan de Oro, Ormoc, and Tagum) for implementing climate resilient urban plans and designs.
