Resilience ensures development progress is not lost at the first natural or manmade disaster, and limits the impact of shocks and stresses on people, infrastructure and processes. Despite numerous tools being available, many cities are still left behind and unable to access funding to conduct resilience analysis and act. To tackle this issue, UCLG, UN-Habitat, and UNDRR have joined forces to scale-up local resilience. Building on peer-learnings, existing publications, the SDG localization process, and UN-Habitat’s resilience profiling approach, a new Resilience Learning Module has been rolled out following a virtual training of trainers’ format aiming to reach forgotten cities (intermediate, informal, island) by providing a flexible and adaptable resilience learning resource.
