Building Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia: Case Studies from Cambodia and Thailand

How can Southeast Asian cities build resilience of the most vulnerable to climate change? The Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia Partnership (UCRSEA) helps address this challenge by researching how to make urban climate governance more inclusive & equitable. We invite you to join an afternoon of presentations from four graduate students who will share their findings from recent fieldwork in the region.

Angelica de Jesus, PhD student, Department of Geography and Planning, University of Toronto
