Initial findings of country studies for Indonesia and the Philippines were presented in two national workshops in Jakarta and Manila, respectively, last March. 

The studies, authored by International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), were commissioned under the regional technical assistance Advancing Inclusive and Resilient Urban Development Targeted at the Urban Poor, funded by the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF).

Organized by IIED in collaboration with the governments of these countries, the workshops generated useful comments and recommendations from experts and representatives from government, nongovernment organizations, development partners, and academia. The country studies, which are to be completed in 2019, will identify the issues related to climate change faced by the urban poor, the opportunities for investments to address these issues, and the necessary capacity building interventions for strengthening the resilience of urban poor.
