Urban Community based micro resilience model of exposed to climate and hydro-meterological risks

City Resilience Strategy provided intervention framework to identify climate change risks and vulnerability of communities in Gorakhpur. Drinking water, sanitation, drainage, solid waste and health systems and services in city fail very often under climate stressed conditions. Large numbers of municipal wards are flooded and become unlivable for several months during rains. Community based micro resilience model of ward exposed to climate change impacts uses people’s wisdom and participation to improve systemic efficiency to minimize vulnerability of residents. Community
based groups organize regular meetings, prepares monthly plan, implement and monitor municipal services. Groups and citizens forum demands for conservation of water bodies and open spaces. Significant improvement is achieved in solid waste management, drainage and drinking water supply to households.
