UCRSEA is pleased to announce that its book, Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia, is finally out of press. Co-edited by Prof. Amrita Daniere (University of Toronto) and Dr. Matthias Garschagen (United Nations University), it features the work of young scholars and graduate students who have been involved in the Partnership whose research focused on the relationship between urban poverty, vulnerability and climate change adaptation in rapidly urbanizing areas in Southeast Asia. It also highlights both the vulnerabilities to climate change faced by residents in these areas as well as ways to enhance their resilience and hence, economic and social well-being. The goal is to share the knowledge we have all gained from their combined research to both address emerging debates but also offer key recommendations that can help urban residents to achieve long-term resilience. All the work focuses on the dynamics of power relations and looks to increase the role and voice of the traditionally marginalized in shaping their future urban spaces.
The book, available in hard cover and as an e-book, can be purchased from Springer Nature at https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319989679. Please feel free to share with your colleagues and friends!
