Global Alliance for Urban Crises
Adapting Humanitarian Action to an Urban World
The humanitarian landscape is changing. Urbanization is defining our global reality and will shape our future. The intersection of urbanization with conflict, displacement and climate change calls into question traditional ways humanitarians respond to crises. Cities and towns provide opportunities to respond differently. The Global Alliance for Urban Crises has emerged to address these trends and challenges.
Working together in an innovative partnership, more than 65 organizations have joined together – from local authorities, humanitarian, development, and urban actors – to better prevent, prepare for and respond to urban crises.
