What is the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund?

September 2018

The Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) is a multidonor trust fund established in 2013 with the objective of building the resilience of 2.2 million people in 25 cities in eight countries in Asia. It aims to reduce risks faced by vulnerable communities and assets from extreme weather events through better city planning and climate-resilient infrastructure.

Covering all stages of the infrastructure investment project cycle, from planning to investment to design and implementation, UCCRTF works to increase the resilience benefits of ADB investments, particularly for the poor and vulnerable. Since its establishment, UCCRTF has approved over $87 million worth of grants supporting 29 city-level projects.

The trust fund is administered by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) with contributions from the Governments of Switzerland and the United Kingdom and the Rockefeller Foundation.
