Disaster Reduction Goal

Cities must be low-risk and resilient if they want to be sustainable: resilient to disaster,
climate change, unforeseen events and economic shocks.

Policies and Programmes in DRR

Resilient City is one of ICLEI agendas focusing on helping cities to become more resilient to disaster,
climate change, unforeseen events and economic shocks.
Every year ICLEI organizes a Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation - Resilient Cities. Resilient Cities 2013 will take place from 31 May to 2 June 2013 in Bonn, Germany.
