Cagayan de Oro City is among five partner cities by the UN-Habitat in its Building Climate Resiliency Through Urban Plans and Designs (BCRUPD) Project. The said project will support the Philippine government in improving policies, regulations, and capacities to adapt to climate change through the promotion of climate-responsive sustainable urban development plans and designs.
More specifically, the project will provide institutional support for the City Government of Cagayan de Oro to develop climate resilient urban plans and designs. Other partner cities are Ormoc, Legazpi, Tagum and Angeles. The project started in March 2017 and will end on February 2020. Among the expected output of the project are improved capacity of the LGU to develop resilient urban plans and designs and facilitate urban adaptation projects of the city to access climate financing and other modalities of funding. Total project cost is EUR 2,055,000.
