As drivers of the global economy and home to much of the world’s population, cities play a vital role in securing a resilient future. Yet due to acute disasters and long-term changes they are also vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
This session will seek solutions to the critical challenges and stimulate discussions on opportunities to enhance urban system resilience in the face of climate change.
