Cities have become the centers human activity and thus there is a confluence of risk at the urban level. Risks are created by our development decisions, by sectors and how these risks are no longer a standalone matter but are increasingly interconnected and more and more systemic (effects feeding into another and adding into that other and so on). Consequential, the economic losses are mounting as we are not able to address risk, requiring thus investments on three dimensions, not only the build environment, but also the social, economic, and environmental.

Risk informed urban development is so relevant, as well as ensuring this practice populates the urban scale, meaning that it ensures a systems’ thinking and bring actors and stakeholders together.

The Working Group on Risk Informed Urban Development (WG-RIUD) would like to cordially invite you to our ongoing Insight Moment program. The WG-RIUD is a joint-initivative between the GIZ’s programs of Connective Cities and the Global Initiative on Disaster Risk Management.

An Insight Moment is a highly specialized input, delivered by international experts from the fields of climate change, disaster risk management, finance, urban planners, and geospatial sciences, to tackle the complex risks and multidimensional threats which societies are exposed to today.
