Disruptive resilience: an agenda for the new normal in cities of the global South

Source(s):  International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)

Urban centers across the world are unprepared for the ‘disruptive risks’ they now face. Highly unlikely disturbances are occurring more frequently. Established hazard patterns are shifting. Multiple crises are unfolding concurrently. A disturbance in one part of the globe is felt in another. The compound impacts of COVID-19 and climate change are important examples of disruptive risks that are rendering existing risk-management systems and practices redundant. New kinds of data, modes of collaboration, financial mechanisms, innovation models, and decision-making approaches are needed to bring a vision of ‘disruptive resilience’ to life and meet this challenge effectively. This briefing explores the need to address disruptive risk, proposes an agenda for moving this work forward, and provides inspiring examples of where approaches in building disruptive resilience are already proving fruitful.
