Climate change has become a global development challenge in line with increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases resulting from various human activities, which generally concentrated in cities. Globally, cities are 3% of the area on the earth’s surface, but they contribute 60- 80% of energy consumption and 75% of global carbon emissions (UN, 2015). Although climate change has detected since the industrial revolution, significant climate changes have occurred in the last 30-40 years.
Inisiatif Kota untuk Perubahan Iklim (IKUPI), originally known as the Initiative for Urban Climate Change and Environment (IUCCE), was established to help achieve goals and promote urban resilience to climate change and environmental change. IKUPI encourages collaboration and partnership as well as the involvement of various stakeholders.
