ACCCRN and Mercy Corps have contributed significantly to increased interest in urban climate change resilience (UCCR) in Indonesia. A dozen cities are now interested in replicating the ACCCRN model, demonstrating the need to institutionalize the program’s learning in a national platform to strengthen and add momentum to these efforts. During Phase IV of the ACCCRN program in Indonesia, the main aim is to increase the synergy amongst the work, tools and networks of its stakeholders to build a comprehensive and effective resilience strategy applicable for cities, regencies, and provinces across Indonesia.
In parallel, as part of the final grant for this 9-year initiative, Mercy Corps has been selected to take the lead in building a regional network of practitioners and institutions to advance urban climate change resilience in Asia. Beyond an initial Rockefeller-funding period, the formulation of a network is intended to sustain and build upon the work of ACCCRN by strengthening relationships, continuing to build knowledge and capacity related to UCCR while expanding influence and the base of actors engaged beyond the current core partners.
Mercy Corps has set up a new membership website at ACCCRN.NET. By November 2015 it had recruited almost 600 members. In parallel, and in partnership with work conducted under a communications grant to Acclimatise, a content schedule is in place to expand website content in conjunction with a social media strategy. Other, ad hoc, materials are also being posted.
