Resilient Cities - Policy Highlights


Resilient cities - cities that have the ability to absorb, recover and prepare for future shocks (economic, environmental, social & institutional).

Cities share similar challenges

  • Economic growth in cities is slowing.
  • Cities have high unemployment rates. 
  • Ageing is increasingly an issue. 
  • Natural disasters.


Report findings:

  • Resilient cities can bounce back using the lessons learnt from their past experiences, taking a long term perspective and making the best use of their local resources.
  • Cities are taking innovative approaches to respond to those challenges on resilience. 10 case study cities of the project showed innovative examples, which will be shared today; such as open innovation policies, citizen engagement, diversifying industrial structure, undertaking compact city policies and forming alliance of cities and universities.
  • Cities are undertaking a participatory approach, inviting diverse actors on board, such as citizens and universities. They are not only the recipient of public services, but they are the providers of their knowledge and experiences to have better public policies.
