This paper is one of a series ACCCRN has commissioned as a set of scoping studies supported by our collaborating partner, the Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation programme (ESPA). They provide insight into how evidence is used (or not) in urban decision-making in the context of ecosystem hazards as cities expand into their broader landscapes.

ACCCRN has been established to strengthen the capacity of cities’ practitioners to support governments and communities to build urban climate change resilience. We plan to do this by connecting practitioners in Asia to exchange learning and collaborate to better serve their communities and cities to adapt and improve in the face of climate change. In order to do this, ACCCRN provides programs to enable its member to connect, learn, and collaborate, one of which is social gatherings, the first of which we held at Melaka, Malaysia, on 3 March 2016.
The Regional Forum on Climate Change, hosted in Bangkok July 1st – 3rd, 2015, aimed to influence climate policy in the region and to provide inputs for ASEAN’s position in global negotiation especially for the upcoming COP 21 in Paris, France. Indonesia took advantage of this opportunity and Rizaldi Boer from CCROM-SEAP IPB led a very interesting session for Low Carbon Asia Research Network (LoCARNET) on formulating integrated policies between mitigation and adaptation.
