By 2030 most of the globes inhabitants will be living with cities. It is therefore important that cities are resilient to sustenance and energy challenge in the face of increasing demands from population expansion and increasing environmental variability and uncertainty brought about by intensifying climate change. The Strengthening Urban Engagement of Universities in Asia and Africa (SUEUAA) project aims to enhance university engagement capacity in this context and optimise engagement strategy to maximise impact in urban areas. We use the term 'environmental resilience' to encapsulate both energy and sustenance challenges. We believe these must be tackled in a holistic manner as there are intimate links between the production and usage of energy, food and water and consequent generation and disposal of waste. This paper focuses on the experiences and vision of SUEUAA partners in Johannesburg (South Africa), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Duhok (Iraq), Sanandaj (Iran), and Manila (Philippines), so it encapsulates views and solutions for engagement strategies on several environmental challenges facing cities in very different climatic situations.
