Trends in Urban Resilience 2017

Over the past decade, resilience has been gaining ever greater prominence in the international development discourse, emerging as one of the core principles of sustainable urban development in the post-MDGs framework.

The publication’s purpose is to account for this unprecedented global momentum for resiliencebuilding from an urban standpoint: inquiring the trends that drive the theory, investigating how these were gradually incorporated in development agendas, mapping the diverse landscape of actors involved, and analysing how this perspective shift can be translated into forward-looking urban policies and practices.

“Trends in Urban Resilience 2017” is an insightful review of methodologies, approaches, and progress illustrated in case studies, an overview of communities of practice delivering support to cities around the world to achieve their goals of inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable human settlements. The report highlights actions which help cities develop their capacity to absorb the impact of hazards, protect and preserve human life, and limit damage to and destruction of public and private assets, all the while continuing to provide the essential infrastructure and services in the aftermath of a crisis.
