Urban areas may be increasingly at risk, but they also offer opportunities to work differently and to ensure crisis response provides immediate humanitarian relief while also strengthening urban resilience. This will require new partnerships that go beyond the humanitarian sector.The Alliance provides the framework to build these partnerships and work towards common goals to improve how we prepare for and react on the ground when faced with an urban humanitarian crisis.You can download the  Urban Crises Charter and associated Recommendations hereTo express an interest in joining the Alliance, please contact urban.session@whsummit.org
