Urban Resilience

Urban Resilience has been defined as the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience. Urbanization is recognised to be a key driver to ecosystem change, however new risks, like the impacts from climate change, will increasingly strain current systems and governance structures.
Many cities around the world experienced increased pressure on their green spaces and parks during the COVID 19 lockdowns, which has prompted more focus on the importance of urban forests and thriving ecosystems to enhance well being.
This event will explore how collaborations among government, business, and civil society can collectively bring better results in cities that reduce risk and the vulnerability of vital ecosystems in the midst of rapid urbanisation.
