Urban and Community Resilience Initiative

Scaling urban and community resilience: A strategy for global action

This strategy paper outlines the concept for a collective global initiative on urban and community resilience. The goal is to encourage and enable a much greater number of communities to initiate and sustain climate resilience activities. With the Red Cross Red Crescent (RC/RC) and key partners acting as catalyzing agents, the concept envisions like-minded humanitarian, development, government, research and business organizations working hand in hand to pool their respective resources and expertise in support of community priorities.
