How to make cities more resilient: a handbook for local government leaders

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

A contribution to the global campaign 2010-2015 Making Cities Resilient – 'My City is Getting Ready!':

This handbook provides mayors, governors, councillors and other local government leaders with a generic framework for risk reduction and points to good practices and tools that are already being applied in different cities for that purpose. It discusses why building disaster resilience is beneficial; what kind of strategies and actions are required; and how to go about the task. It offers practical guidance to understand and take action on the "Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient" as set out in the global campaign "Making Cities Resilient: My City is Getting Ready!".

A web-based information platform, where cities and local governments can share their own tools, plans, regulations and practices, complements the Handbook and will be available through the Campaign website.
