Urban Resilience in Asia Pacific: A Scoping Study for Red Cross and Red Crescent

IFRC Asia Pacific Zone has conducted a scoping study to map urban resilience initiatives in the Red Cross Red Crescent movement and beyond. The review looked at past and present knowledge and experiences regarding urban resilience to both provide an evidence base and prompt questions for thought and discussion at the Urban Resilience Think Tank meeting.

The think tank meeting was hosted by the Philippines Red Cross in Manila to reflect on achievements, gaps, and challenges at present, and provides concrete direction for the future.
