Disaster Risk Reduction and Urban Resilience

By April 1, 2021 Cities Clusters

Background

Disaster risk reduction is an important component for achieving sustainable development of cities, in particular when the world is steadily becoming more urban. Fast-growing cities and urban areas of the world, mostly located in the global South, increase disaster risk due to economic growth and fast population expansion. The knowledge sharing between cities by reporting practices that have been already tested and implemented by one city and that can be successfully adapted by another is highly desired. In 2020, Cities Project organized 5 capacity training webinars jointly with UNDRR, PAHO/WHO received participation from over 2400 participants from over 140 countries.  As a follow up to results achieved in 2020, in 2021 Cities Project will continue facilitating collaborations among cities and institutions under this theme in partnership with specialized agencies.
