Strategic planning tools for urban resilience: city-to-city exchange on local resilience planning

World Urban Forum

9 February 2018, 11:00 - 14:00
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia- Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

On 9 February (11:00-14:00 UTC),ICLEI Europe will hold a training session for cities at the World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur on building resilience in cities.

The resilience-building process at the local level requires skills and methodologies that are often not at hand in city administrations. In order to enhance cities’ capacity to resist, absorb and recover from the effects of climate change, the EU-funded project Smart Mature Resilience is developing standardized approaches and tools to support the design of climate adaptation and resilience strategies.

The training event will present the tools developed by the project, discuss how these contribute to the overall resilience building process and how they feed into an integrated management system for resilience planning that can be transferred to the local context of other cities, regions and countries.
