The Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia Partnership (UCRSEA) is a multi-disciplinary and international collaborative partnership, combining the science of interpreting climate change’s uncertainties, risks, and impacts with social science analysis from geography, anthropology, and planning. It addresses vulnerabilities to climate change in urbanizing areas of Southeast Asia to enhance resilience and, hence, economic and social well-being.

The Partnership is funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
