Our Global Programme on Resilient Cities, Informality, and Climate Change, emphasizes the importance of giving voice to the urban poor, recognizing them as partners with local governments to build more equitable and resilient cities. We are currently supporting community-based projects in Liberia, Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, Bangladesh and Myanmar, all countries significantly affected by climate shocks.
