About MARE-Asia

The diminishing of natural resources combined with climate change becomes a major risk for urban areas in Asia. The high urbanization rate, lack of appropriate infrastructure and investments, and climate change vulnerability put Indonesia in a risky position regarding livability.

Urgent changes are needed and coordination on each institutional level between government agencies, private sector, community organizations and citizens in order to successfully implement climate adaptation process.

Identifying the major climate and water management issues in the cities will enable the stakeholders to develop intervention opportunities, which will result with a series of project ideas that can help greening of the city.

The objective of the project is to improve overall livability in the cities by understanding the urban profile and to develop best practices for climate adaptation.
