Building Climate Resilience for Urban Poor : Working with Indian Civil Society

The plight of urban poor so far has gone unnoticed with most of the CSO’s and government programs typically designed to support the rural poor. The poor in urban areas are especially prone to climate risks, disease and injury as they typically live in dangerous sites with unsafe housing, unclean water, poor sanitation and drainage provision. The current project puts spotlight on addressing vulnerability and improving accountability towards the urban poor.

  • To sensitise organizations and stakeholders of the “climate community” on rights of urban poor and demand the protection and realization of urban poor’s human rights as an integral part of urban climate policies.
  • To build capacities of organizations working on urban poor’s political, social and economic rights with lens of climate change, adaptation, resilience and mitigation
