The project built on the results of the Study of existing frameworks and methodologies for Urban Vulnerability Assessments (UVA) / Urban Risk Assessments (URA) including recommendations for the German Development Cooperation, realized by the GIZ Sector Project Urban Development Policy Advice. In particular, Framework 11 (the Rockefeller Foundation Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN)) was explored. This method had a very strong focus on stakeholder engagement and participation and on poverty and social development. ICLEI has enhanced this by making it more concrete for local government officials and creating ICLEI’s urban vulnerability assessment methodology.
