Resilient Cities

Disaster risk management cycle in cities

Urban centers worldwide are confronting the escalating impacts of climate change. Recent assessment reports note that it is very likely that heat waves will occur more often and last longer and that extreme precipitation events will become more intense and frequent. The rise of the global mean sea level will increase the risks to coastal systems and low-lying areas.

Resilient city Network

Today, international urban climate change networks are gaining strength, city climate change programs are being funded by national governments and foundations, and cities are taking on responsibility for both reducing GHG emissions and building resilience.
