UCCRN to Support Six Cities Chosen for the Climate Adaptation Partnership Program
The selected six cities, the International City/County Management Association’s CityLinks team, and experts from Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) will work to confront climate challenges and build a global network of cities that can learn from each other. UCCRN will provide additional targeted technical support to the initiative.
Both resource and international partner cities were selected based on the strength of their applications and commitment to the program. Cities were then paired together based on the similarity of their topography, climate, and infrastructure risks.
In the first round of partnerships, Boulder, Colorado will act as a resource city for Shimla, India and Townsville, Australia will act as a resource city for Portmore, Jamaica. Somerville, Massachusetts will serve as a resource city for La Ceiba, Honduras in the second round of partnerships.
