Importance of Resilient Cities for local governments

Resilient Cities provides a global platform where all local governments can learn and be inspired by the broad array of knowledge on offer while contributing their own experiences, whether they are in the first or final stages of resilience planning. The forum connects local leaders and practitioners to a diverse community of experts, hosting multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder discussions on the latest research, tools, methodologies, and case studies that encourage innovation and integrated  approaches. The congress also facilitates peer learning between cities from around the world – 550 representatives from over 150 subnational governments have attended since 2010. The progress made and partnerships forged at Resilient Cities attest to the success of the series and to ICLEI’s continued leadership in local capacity building and international, multi-sectoral exchange.
