Thematic overview

Resilience building prepares urban systems, municipal operations and communities to prevent, absorb and recover from shocks and stresses and adapt to inevitable global change. Local and regional governments have to embed resilience at the core of their action to be able to adapt to rapid technological and demographic changes.

Strengthening partnerships across multiple levels, mobilizing resources to accelerate local action, and equipping local and regional governments to adopt holistic approaches will be key questions addressed at the ICLEI World Congress 2018.
