Resilient Cities - The Annual Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation - is the global platform for urban resilience and climate change adaptation, hosted every year in Bonn.
In 2010 ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, the World Mayors Council on Climate Change and the City of Bonn, Germany launched Resilient Cities, the first World Congress on Cities and Adaptation to Climate Change (in 2012 renamed as Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation). More than 500 participants and beyond 30 partners each year helped make Resilient Cities a milestone event connecting local government leaders and climate adaptation experts to discuss adaptation challenges facing urban environments around the globe.
The special 10th anniversary edition of Resilient Cities will focus on:
- Paving the way for resilience: research, cooperation, planning, finance and implementation;
- Advancing resilience, especially on efficient resource management, natural and cultural heritage protection and food systems;
- Innovation for resilience: digitalization, nature-based solutions, adaptive infrastructure, tinkering and blockchain;
- Building resilient societies, focusing on forced migration, resettlement, inclusion, social cohesion and citizens' voluntary emergency response.
