"At the Mayors' Summit in Copenhagen in December 2009, World Bank President Robert Zoellick and a number of mayors welcomed the formation of a Mayors' Task Force on Urban Poverty and Climate Change. At a meeting of the Task Force in April 2010, participating mayors and the World Bank agreed to undertake case studies in four cities - Dar es Salaam, Jakarta, Mexico City and São Paulo.
The main aim of these case studies is to take stock and learn from what is happening with regard to urban poverty, climate change and disaster risk management in these cities. This film was produced by the World Bank team in Jakarta in partnership with the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta.
It seeks to raise awareness and support understanding of the impacts of climate change in the city, and highlight the myriad ways in which the government and communities are adapting and responding. A written case study report will be published later in 2011."
