This paper describes research undertaken in five Indian cities (Shimla, Indore, Gorakhpur, Panjim and Guwahati), to improve the understanding of the vulnerability of urban poor children to climatic risks and the role of peri-urban ecosystems in resilience building.

The poor in cities are faced with dual challenge – that of housing shortages and of increased vulnerability to climate change impacts, given the location of their houses as well as their capacities to recover. More often than not, housing for the urban poor is not only an asset, but also a place for income generation.
