Barcelona, 12 July 2014: The first meeting of UN-Habitat’s City Resilience Profiling Programme (CRPP) took place earlier this month with four member cities meeting in Spain.

The Programme brought together representatives from Beirut, Concepción-Talcahuano, Wellington, and the host city, Barcelona, to hold the inaugural workshop and assess how they are progressing in the development and completion of the City Resilience Profiling Tool. 

Due to the high level of participation of cities, the experience meant that cities could expose and share the main difficulties and challenges that they face with the process and, at the same time, request information from the Programme to implement improvements in the development of the tool and its web application. 

This type of meeting is part of the strategy of the City Resilience Profiling Programme to help and accompanying partner cities in the use of the tool.
