Making Cities Resilient by Integrating Nature-Based Solutions into Urban Planning

United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) (2019)

UNDRR and its partners are working towards sustainable urbanization. The Making Cities Resilient Campaign (MCRC), launched in May 2010, leverages local governance to address a multitude of urban risks. The Campaign is a UNDRR-led partnership that aims to actively engage local governments and urban communities worldwide on resilience and disaster risk reduction. Phase 2 of the MCRC is being put in motion for 2020-2030 with a focus on assisting Local Governments in designing and implementing policies and plans that build the resilience of their cities. Cities participating in the campaign (currently 4,270 and growing) will be encouraged to adopt nature-based solutions as a sustainable tool to build their resilience.
