Path to Climate Resiliency: Case Studies of Cities in the Philippines

Under the Building Climate Resiliency through Urban Plans and Designs (BCRUPD) project, innovative approaches on climate-resilient urban plans and designs were demonstrated in the cities of Angeles, Cagayan de Oro, Legazpi, Ormoc, and Tagum.

Their experiences showcased how cities can prepare for, recover from, and adapt to the impacts of climate change, considering balanced economic and ecological sustainability in the face of rapid urbanization. Given the five cities’ different ecosystems, they contributed to a wide knowledge base on how processes and schemes can be contextualized and applied.

This publication captures the experiences of the five cities on their path towards climate resiliency; discussing their climate and urban profile, climate change vulnerabilities and challenges, how they used urban plans and designs to address these challenges, and their prospective climate resiliency projects. Their experiences illustrate how cities, with science-based information and urban design solutions, can thrive – and not merely survive – in the face of climate change.
