Co-producing urban resilience solutions: the role of power and politics
Enhancing urban resilience to climate change is a complex problem. Top-down, linear design, implementation and monitoring programmes are not sufficient. Instead, interventions that work with civil society organisations, policymakers and academics in the co-production of more inclusive representations of urban risk and resilience priorities can more effectively influence decision making.
However, for co-production interventions to be impactful they must be sensitive to the power relations that drive urbanisation and climate risk. This paper offers a framework to inform the design of coproduction interventions through an understanding of context-specific politics and power.
