Building urban resilience
Millions of people around the world remain affected by natural disasters every year and the economic damages incurred continue to increase. Adopted in 2015 at the Third UN World Conference in Sendai, Japan, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 is a voluntary instrument aimed at building resilience at the local level. It supports national and local disaster risk reduction via climate change adaptation strategies focusing on building local capacities in crisis-prone cities. The EU-funded BuildERS project will increase understanding of societal resilience to strengthen social capital, risk awareness and preparedness of the vulnerable segments of societies and communities. This will assist in the formulation of policies, plans and strategies.
