Resilient Cities congress series
The IPCC special report on 1.5 degrees warns that even a 1.5-degree global warming scenario comes with significant global impacts: up to 69 million people exposed to flooding and 15 percent of the population exposed to severe heat. Urban areas are already feeling the effects of global warming, which are set to intensity over time.
The Resilient Cities congress bring urban resilience to the fore. It is the global platform for urban resilience and climate change adaptation, organized by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and co-hosted with the City of Bonn, Germany.
Overall the past decade, 4,000 participants, representing local governments, researchers, intergovernmental bodies, businesses and civil society, have come together at Resilient Cities to look at the latest issues and trends in urban resilience, forge new partnerships and exchange ideas and good practices.
Each year, the congress offers a variety of sessions and events covering topics at the forefront of global resilience discussions, including anything from financing resilient cities to resilient urban logistics to digitalization.
