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

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

This Handbook is designed primarily for local government leaders and policy makers. It seeks to support public policy and decision making so they can implement activities to reduce disaster risk and build resilience. It sets out practical guidance for putting the “Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient“, into action. 

This Handbook showcases the knowledge and expertise of several cities part of the Global Making Cities Resilient Campaign. It responds to the call for better access to information and knowledge resources, and tools to effectively deal with the impacts of natural hazards and climate change. It provides an overview of key strategies and actions as part of an overall sustainable urban development strategy.

The annex to this Handbook contains links to tools, resources, and examples from partner cities. A web-based information platform, where cities and local governments can share their own tools, plans, regulations, and practices complements the Handbook.
