Although they vary in scale, magnitude and source, all cities face hazards. A resilient city is able to prepare, recover and adapt to all plausible hazards, not only withstanding the impacts, but also building back better to reduce the impact of future hazards.
Transforming and enhancing urban life through resilience
The City Resilience Profiling Programme (CRPP) is a flagship programme within UN-Habitat, the UN agency for human settlements. Our work supports local governments and their stakeholders to increase urban resilience. We recognize resilience as more than a safeguard against hazards but as an enabler for sustainable urban development.
