Action and implementation

Resilience.io

Currently being built and tested, resilience.io is an open-source, cloud-based, scalable city-regional software platform linked to earth systems models. It enables communities anywhere to gather earth observation, economic, social and environmental data in a crowd sourced manner and build a dynamic 3D systems visualization of their region, land and sea. A game-based version for schools will enable children to explore how resources and gases flow as a result of human and ecological activity in their neighborhood and what impact this has on their local health.

Developing Local Climate Change Plans: A Guide For Cities In Developing Countries

This tool provides local policy-makers and major stakeholders with a methodology to plan for climate change. These plans must address both mitigation (e.g., reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere) and adaptation (responding to the impacts of climate change). If they are to be effective, local plans for climate change (both adaptation and mitigation) require the involvement of a variety of stakeholders and a specific focus on the most vulnerable groups.

ICLEI ACCCRN Process Workbook

The ICLEI ACCCRN Process (IAP) enables local governments to assess their climate risks in the context of urbanisation, poverty and vulnerability and formulate corresponding resilience strategies. It draws on the experiences from the ten core ACCCRN cities (see www.acccrn.org) and existing ICLEI approaches and has been applied in a range of cities in Indonesia, Bangladesh, the Philippines and India.

Global Compact CityScan

The Cities Programme, the urban arm of the United Nations Global Compact, has developed a diagnostic and reporting tool termed the ‘Global Compact CityScan’. This has been done to support cities and regions who are playing an increasingly important role in tackling critical global issues. In the first stage of its development, the CityScan has been trialled in 20 countries (2014-15).
