Angeles climate adaptation strategies include actions to address the projected warmer urban areas, drier years as well as water insecurity in the next decades. These projects are grouped into two priority sections called the North- South and East-West corridors. Focusing on these two corridors is envisioned to achieve “Makayamang Angeles” or a cooler, inviting Angeles City, particularly in the concentration of development and population. Some of the typical urban design spaces proposed for the pilot projects include streetscape, esplanade, park, forest park, linear park, green roof, and green space requirement in all types of property lots among others. These urban design spaces shall be interconnected through walkways and bikeways all over the two priority corridors.
Within the East-West Corridor is the Angeles Aquipark Project located along the Abacan River. Located in the urban barangays of Brgy. Sapangbato and Brgy. Margot, these pilot sites are expected to showcase that integrated adaptive adjustment on the built environment across the urban system (roads, blocks, houses, and neighborhood) will optimize its benefits. The sites are also good representatives for replication across the city as there are among the most vulnerable to climate hazards. Barangay Sapangbato is one of the most vulnerable to heat stress, particularly its agriculture sectors, threatening a total of PHP 37 million worth of agricultural produce. On the other hand, communities in Barangay Margot are exposed to urban heat and decreased rainfall where projections predict that about 2,000 vulnerable residents are highly at risk to heat stress.

Iskandar Malaysia’s mobility system both crossing into Singapore and throughout the rest of the region, is experiencing substantial levels of congestion. The current inefficiencies of the mobility system are a cause of concern, economically, environmentally and socially. High reliance on private motorised transport infringes on productivity due to time and money lost travelling and moving goods. Greenhouse gas emissions, particulate matter, air, and noise pollution are creating a stressful and unhealthy urban environment. Although Iskandar Malaysia is heavily investing in public transport, for example through the introduction of a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system and the development of a mobility planner application, the need remains to optimise the road network. To prevent the continuation of road expansions, traffic needs to be managed and planned more effectively. In response to these needs, a Smart Integrated Mobility Management System (SIMMS) will be developed. The proposed SIMMS will be designed to serve as a key foundation for a sustainable mobility system in Iskandar Malaysia by supporting day-to-day traffic operations as well as long-term transport planning.
To ensure the effective utilisation of the data collected by SIMMS, as well as other sources, the second component of the project is focused on Creating Enabling Conditions for Data Utilisation and Management for Evidence-based Urban and Transport Planning. Operational management and long-term planning require a reliable database that enables planners to find evidence-based solutions to the urbanisation challenges of the region. This project component will improve capacity in Iskandar Malaysia to use smart technologies and data analysis to inform future spatial and transportation plans. It connects directly with the Iskandar Malaysia Urban Observatory (IMUO) by creating a framework and building the necessary capacity to enable the integrated use of data across sectors and authorities. Through an integrated approach of informing both urban and transport planning, the project aims to be able to tackle issues such as the lack of accessibility and connectivity in the region, which threatens to heighten social exclusion particularly for those who cannot or do not drive.
The City of Kisumu’s “Integrated Strategic Urban Development (ISUD) Plan”, identified the Lakefront Area as a key asset for the city and proposed its development as an extension of the Central Business District (CBD). The land targeted for this expansion was owned by the Kenya Railway Corporation (KRC) who also planned to develop the land, on a commercial basis. In order to materialise the development of the area in a way that: benefits the city; presents economic gains for land owners and developers; and preserves the local economy that was active in part of the area; UN-Habitat prepared the Lakefront Development Advisory Plan and further analysed legislation and overall economic feasibility of the areas (see annex) . UN-Habitat also proposed the formation of Lakefront Development Corporation, a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) that would promote public and private sector investment and development of the lakefront. Upon assuming Office in 2018, the Governor of Kisumu, Professor Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o, took up the recommendation of UN-Habitat and established the SPV known as Kisumu Lakefront Development Corporation (KLDC). The vehicle is currently seeking UN-Habitat support to operationalise the Advisory Plan and subsequently attract investors to the lakefront.

Flood Control is one of the main objectives of Ribeirão Perus Linear Park, in the Subprefeitura de Perus (subprefecture or borough of Perus), situated at extreme northwest region of the city of São Paulo. Once built, Ribeirão Perus Linear Park will be São Paulo’s very first flooding park or drainage park.
Located in the neighborhood of Vila Aurora, at upstream of Perus ’s central area, the “Núcleo Reservação”, or Reservation Nucleus, one of the five sections of the proposed park, is conceived as a flood control and flood prevention infrastructure to protect Peru’s lower areas from inundation.
The “Núcleo Reservação” project site an area of approx. 670.000 m2 (67 ha), distributed in a narrow valley along 1.200 meters of Perus Creek (Ribeirão Perus). For the storm water management purpose, the project includes the restoration, stabilization and protection of the existing stream and the construction of two dams. For general environmental regeneration purpose, it incorporates re-vegetation with native species, Atlantic Rain Forest enhancement and riparian ecosystem restoration.
The Comprehensive Plan for “Núcleo Reservação” is divided into 3 main sections. The top portion, next to the community of Curruíra Street in Vila Aurora Neighborhood, will be the social and cultural hub the park. It will provide public access, buildings for multiple uses, recreation fields and facilities for conservation and maintenance of the park and built structures.
The central portion of the park, between the constructed dams, will be the floodable “valley bottom”, where, during dry season, the expansive grassy valley plain can hold informal activities and, at the same time, allowing the riparian ecosystem to flourish; and, during rainy season, it can be flooded as a temporary storm water retention reservoir.
The lower portion the park, before the stream leaves the project site, will be “renaturalized” with landscape works to allow visitors to engage physical contact with the water. This section of the park will be the “hands-on” environmental education center, catering for not only the nearby residents and general visitors, but also local schools children, students and researchers.
The 3 sections of the park will tied together by the creek and a looping service road, used for monitoring and maintenance of the park and the storm water management, and as paths for park users and connection between activities.

The city of Antananarivo currently has 2.5 million inhabitants. The cyclical political crises have led to dramatic misery, particularly for a large section of its population, which has taken the place of habitation: the low-lying areas of the city. The waste especially the bags, big and small of any type, are reused as everywhere in a bloated way despite the decree on the prohibition of certain types of sachets. But as everywhere, they are disposable and millions of bags are mixed with waste.
To carry out these activities in these projects, Action Pour la Renaissance intends to Collect, evacuate solid and liquid household waste to the dumping sites previously set up by it in Goma, recycle and transform solid and liquid managerial waste for reuse. (In the medium term).
This activity will be accompanied by door-to-door sensitization sessions in churches, markets and other public places on the rules of hygiene in relation to the proper conservation and treatment of waste at home but also on other risky practices in reference to the routes of transmission of diseases. Emphasis will be placed on changing behaviors and practices to prevent WASH-related diseases. The impacts of poor household waste management are multiple and were identified during the assessment
People in the city are deprived of the socioeconomic and environmental benefits of a public park. There are only two public parks in the city with a total area of 5,000 sqm for a population of 400,000 (0.0125 sqm/person). The project site is in the shore-land of Laguna de Bay which is relatively dry but susceptible to inundation and liquefaction. Aside from the site, most of the shore-land are already occupied by informal settlers. The project will be a pilot for other LGUs to emulate.
The infrastructure required for the solar field is 138,750 solar panels of 400w each, on a plot of 94 hectares, to generate 55.5 megawatts that the local water agency needs to supply energy to all the functions it performs, from the collection, driving, distribution, wastewater treatment and office. The renovation and rehabilitation of electro-mechanical equipment is required for 15 treatment plants to properly sanitize the municipal wastewater.
The programme comprises of five priority component projects focusing on eight mega informal settlements. The goal is to transform these informal settlements into urban neighbourhoods, that will enable communities to access housing opportunities and other socio-economic amenities. Significant infrastructure investment is required. Some sites contain extremely poor ground conditions require land remediation. Assistance in developing appropriate multi-storey housing solutions is required.
The project is aimed at improving roads infrastructure at the village of Sidi Alaya in the municipality of Beni-Khalled, and creating a public space that is safe, friendly, genderblind and democratic for youth, women and families. It will target those most left behind in the context of the 2030 Agenda. The Village of Sidi Alaya is home to 3000 inhabitants, most of which are new internal migrants, which moved from the south, in search for jobs in the surrounding farms. The community is challenged with high school dropouts (18%) due to inadequate roads to get to schools,) and women working in the farms walk to and from work, in the dark on unpaved roads. Youth in the village have no extra curriculum activities, and are hence recruited by street gangs or become addicted to drugs. Most neighbouring jobs required low skilled underpaid labour, which is mainly accepted by women, leaving the men unemployed and violent. The project we present in this call will tremendously improve the quality of life in Sidi Alaya, through better roads system, and better urban space repurposing with sports infrastructure and activities that improve social harmony, improves sense of belonging and hence civic engagement.
This project consists of a Syndicated Urban Operation – the delimitation of an area where urban renewal is expected to be self-financed through the sale of building rights and other urban benefits. The area described in this project is heavily degraded in some parts, while it shows enormous potential for real estate development in others, where the purchase of building rights is already attractive for developers. The idea is that each round of building right sales provides the funds for urban improvements.
It will entail collection, transporting, separation and processing of solid waste from municipal dumps and sewerage systems into clean energy through the gasification and landfill process.
