ECOLISE brings experience of community and municipality collaboration to Asian project

ECOLISE representatives Juan Del Río, Network and Outreach coordinator, and Cristianno Bottone from Municipalities in Transition (MiT), recently travelled to Jakarta, Indonesia, for the launch of a project focussed on Asian cities’ efforts to protect their citizens and cities from the impacts of climate change.

The Climate Resilience and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) Project is a joint European Union and the United Cities and Local Governments Asia Pacific initiative, with many partners including ECOLISE.

ECOLISE will focus in particular on bringing the experience of MiT to show how communities and municipalities in Europe are working together to strengthen resilience and tackle the challenges of climate and ecological breakdown.

CRIC aims to improve the institutional, financial and administrative capacities of cities and local authorities through peer-to-peer learning and exchange of knowledge, development of local action plans for climate resilient and inclusive cities, and organisation of communication and capacity building trainings.
