Asia's Cities Confront Urbanization, Climate Change

Rapid growth and urbanization have contributed to deficiencies in infrastructure and basic service provision across Asian cities. Phnom Penh, recently named one of Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities, faces a legacy of underdevelopment, creating challenges in addressing the effects of climate change such as extreme rains and flooding. Toral Patel blogs about city municipalities in some of Asia's most vulnerable places that are increasingly poised to confront these challenges. Learn about The Asia Foundation's Urban Services partnership in Phnom Penh to help improve service delivery and manage solid waste management, and watch a video about our cutting edge work in Ulaanbaatar to strengthen infrastructure and access to services.
