Road to Resilience: Highlights of BCRUPD’s work for climate resilience and urban development

Building Climate Resiliency through Urban Plans and Design (BCRUPD) is a capacity building project funded by the German government’s International Climate Initiative (IKI). It was implemented by UN-Habitat in partnership with the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development, Climate Change Commission, Department of the Interior and Local Government, National Economic and Development Authority, and League of Cities of the Philippines.

BCRUPD made steps to enhance national and subnational government capacities to guide and manage urban growth and green recovery with resilience principles and practices. The project also supplemented existing planning guidelines and develop knowledge through policy inputs, capacity development, and demonstration activities. Demonstration of innovative approaches in five cities with different ecosystems showcased contextualized processes and schemes to build urban resilience considering balanced economic and ecological sustainability in the face of rapid urbanization. Two of the five cities were assisted on resilient and green recovery from COVID-19 impacts through capacity building and national-subnational collaboration.

This brochure summarizes the accomplishments of the BCRUPD Project from 2017-2022.
