Urban Climate Resilient Infrastructure & Strategic Planning (UCRISP) is an international urban design, planning, research and sustainable development agency registered in California as a non-profit organization. 

 

We originated as the research and sustainable development unit of estudioOCA as a way to explore new approaches to the challenges of climate change. Our work with a diverse range of partners helps us develop and shape our own methodologies to climate change mitigation and adaptation in urban and rural areas, giving equal attention to science-based solutions and community-driven interventions.

 

Our projects provide pragmatic support, in the form of reports and capacity-building workshops, during the decision making process of local leaders and stakeholders. They encourage cooperation between disparate groups in navigating an effective solution to achieve flood and drought resilience.

 

The multidisciplinary nature of our team has characterized the work at UCRISP. Landscape architects, urban designers, planners, water resource engineers, ecologists, social scientists and researchers strategize together to develop detailed solutions that improve urban and rural environments and facilitate connections with local communities. Together we have decades of experience working internationally on projects in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.
