Resilient Development and Risk Management for a Sustainable Urban Future
Pathway focus: Resilient Development
Local and regional leaders are heeding the global call to embed resilience in all sectors, systems and processes at the local level. Resilient development and risk management is a critical piece of preparing communities not only for the impacts that climate change has already brought, but beyond, to a multi-dimensional approach.
The ICLEI Network has spent ten years exploring resilience strategies through the ICLEI Resilient Cities Congress series. At ICLEI World Congress 2021-2022, our network gathered together again to address the urgency of these issues, as set out in the UN Decade of Action.
How can local and regional governments act in uncertain times? This virtual, high level dialogue brought together leaders to discuss overcoming key challenges in the development of informed decision-making and to adapt processes and systems. Global initiatives, such as the Race to Resilience and UNDRR’s Making Cities Resilient 2030, as well as the ICLEI Network’s own resilient development vision and action plan, were also discussed.
