After achieving great success from Resilient Cities Asia-Pacific 2015, ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability, South Asia is back with its second Asia-Pacific Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation – Resilient Cities Asia-Pacific 2016 scheduled to be held at Hotel Equatorial, Melaka from 2-4 March, 2016.

“Melaka as a “Green City-State” is the first state in Malaysia to prepare a GHG emissions inventory and implement an action plan to contribute to the national climate change mitigation target. We are now progressing towards addressing climate resilience and hosting the “2nd Asia Pacific Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation” is an important milestone in the process”, said YAB Datuk Seri Ir.Hj.Idris bin Hj. Haron, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Melaka, Malaysia.

The event will be hosted by Melaka State Government in collaboration with Melaka Historic City Council and IMT-GT. ICLEI South Asia will be organizing the event, which suppose to have about 500 delegates from all over the world attending the conference.

The main objective of the program is to create a space for local governments, institutions and communities where they can come together to discuss climate resilience in urban areas.

According to Judith Rodin, the President of Rockefeller Foundation, “Tackling climate change challenges may require radical new approaches, new ways of thinking and perhaps even an entirely new discipline around the idea of planetary health”.

Previous year, the event had taken place in Bangkok and this time it is ready to land in World heritage city, Melaka. This extraordinary conference will feature many expert speakers on urban resilience development.
