City Resilience Profiling Programe – Volume 11

The CRPP goes beyond conventional approaches to ‘risk reduction,’ delivering a forward-looking, multi-scale, multi-sectoral, multi-hazard, multistakeholder model for building resilience that recognizes the complexities and unique value of cities, and the inherent interdependencies of each part of an urban system. Launching in Quito during the Habitat III conference, UN Habitat’s global Urban Resilience Programme includes the CRPP as its analytic approach to transforming urban planning, development and governance to build resilient human settlements, as well as its normative work on network stewardship, including as recently announced the Chairing of the UNISDR Making Cities Resilience Campaign Steering Committee; standards development with UN and ISO partners; an applied research platform engaging the URP Academic Network; and other operational projects with partner cities and countries.
