International initiatives on city resilience
Taking into consideration international initiatives such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (specifically Goal 11), the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, and the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015, it is important for cities to work on resilience in coordinated action, with the ultimate goal of creating a resilient city. By implementing actions in this field a city will be able to respond to the above-mentioned initiatives because city resilience:
— supports livelihoods and improves the quality of life;
— enhances poverty reduction;
— enhances land use planning that integrates disaster risk assessment;
— helps to manage and protect (critical) infrastructures;
— promotes the continuous productivity of development investments;
— promotes education and capacity building among the population;
— protects housing and ensures social and economic stability; and
— supports social equality and security.
This CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) defines an operational framework for cities which will provide guidance on local resilience planning and support their efforts in building resilience.
This document is intended to be used by policy and decision-makers at city level and councilors working on climate change adaptation and resilience in their city, as well as by any other city stakeholder working on resilience (for example, but not limited to: critical infrastructure managers, service providers, emergency services, the media, civil society associations, non-governmental organizations, academic and research institutions as well as consultancies).
