Scaling urban community resilience: A scoping study for global action

This study, supported under a grant to the Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC) by the Rockefeller Foundation, explores opportunities for scaling up efforts on community resilience in cities and outlines the potential for a new initiative to scale up community and civic action on resilience so that every community has the opportunity to become a resilient community. The concept is for a joined-up initiative for global and local action to encourage and enable a much greater number of communities to initiate and sustain climate resilience activities.
